Dearest Cecilia, the story can resume. The one I had been planning on that evening walk. I can become again the man who once crossed the surrey park at dusk, in my best suit, swaggering on the promise of life. The man who, with the clarity of passion, made love to you in the library. The story can resume. I will return. Find you, love you, marry you and live without shame.

GREEK MYTHOLOGY MEME | [1/7] MORTAL MYTHOLOGICAL FIGURES: CASSANDRA
Cassandra was the mortal daughter of King Priam and Queen Hecuba of Troy. As a child she and her twin brother Helenus were given the gift of prophecy when two snakes came upon the babes one night and licked their ears clean. When morning came the snakes slithered into sacred laurels, a symbol of the god Apollo. As a young woman she rejected the affections of the god and he in turn cursed her: while she still had the gift of prophecy no one would believe her and she would be spurned and thought of as mad. She foresaw the fall of Troy but no one heeded her advice. She sought refuge in the Temple of Athena as her home was sacked, but Ajax the Lesser found her and raped her, all the while Cassandra pleaded with the goddess to help her. Given to Agamemnon as a spoil of war, she was later beheaded by his wife Clytemnestra, angry with her husband’s betrayal.
Via Freckled face fucker.
Oh, you like to think you’re a god. But you’re not a god. You’re just a parasite eaten out with jealousy and envy and longing for the lives of others. You feed on them. On the memory of love and loss and birth and death and joy and sorrow. So.. so, come on, then. Take mine.
