The Minotaurs Sadness

Updated on May 28, 2014

Minotaur's Sadness

No longer do I envision the light of day

The Sun and its powerful ray

But a distant memory for me

Memories forgotten sadly

The warmth of outside

replaced by cold of inside

In this place one day I'll die

Once I remember I lost it all

Icarus flew too close to the sun only to fall

I only wanted to speak to him about

The wings that could help me get out

I'm so tired of being here all alone

I'm like a dog with nothing not even a bone

what did I do to deserve this fate

everyone who enters speaks of me with such hate

Scary a beast I may be

"Friendly, who, not he"

they say with a frown

they'd pay to seem me dead on the ground

They should have at least put in the coliseum

To be outside I'll put many in a mausoleum

I shall not find love I accept that

But what to do in here? sleep, get fat?

Not my idea of how to spend my time

why couldn't they put me to work slaughtering cows and swine

This must be my life

never a wife

her filled with anger and strife

When I escape justice will be quick

I'll impale the warriors with a stick

Take there sword and use it to kill there leader

Not a hemophiliac but I promise he'll be a bleeder

For now All I can do is sit and wait

While I plane My great escape

Minotaur's Sadness

Could the Minotaur's be a tragic character

      Thank you DDE I feel like a lot of characters in mythology get a bad wrap thought maybe we could see into what he was thinking.

      Thank you so much for those kind words. Truly the minotaur is only thinking of himself but you also feel for him a little.

      I loved the way you thought outside of the box creating a voice for "the beast" and allowing him to voice his opinion of his situation; and just like any pity-partier, he was only upset that he had to be accountable for his actions and took no responsibility for what he done. I love this piece I thought it was a fun read and creatively written....voted up!

      Thanks for the title check and thank you both for the read. Between this and Lucifer's Question( I'm trying to give some of these evil characters a different view point.

      Might want to check that title spelling -- it threw me off

      Interesting concept --

      That was a very interesting poem joedolphin88. Nice poetic format too. Kind of sad though. Thanks for sharing.
