All that glitters isn’t gold (Prompt 9) 2021

Sirens beckoned to Odysseus and his ship
Bound to the mast crew deafened
Lashing out trying to escape
Fixated on yonder allure
Seductive charm turns to screams
When unable to get their way
The dark realty hidden inside emerges
Facades fade
That desired intimacy which was never.
