xiv. persephone does care, you silly god

     she hadn’t recognized the passing of time while away
     it felt like age had hit her,
               taken from the raven and given to her
              is this how aging wine felt
      when locked in a barrel for one hundred years?

                   the clock used to tick loudly
             while she flipped eggs and carved toast
did you think about me?

                  the question made her wonder who she really was
every day
               was living death so bad for her image?
                   she wondered what Persephone thought of
                 in the months she was away from Hades –

time didn’t really matter until you came home

                   she thought of me.

Prompt: Clock
