Wife of Underworld
Falling to this dark place wasn’t great at first
But I have tasted the sweetest fruit
I have found a caring husband
Sometimes when visiting my mother
I miss the dark rather gloomy home I leave behind
It’s hidden beauty has started to shine brighter than the sun
But once in awhile it is good to have the sun on my skin
And flower petals in my hair

Is it about Persephone? I am not sure though… I love your expressions esp. the third last one.
Whatever your intent, I see Persephone and all the women who loved the “bad boys” and did not had life as difficult as others might imagine. Although those last 4 lines suggest someone who wants to have it all. And what’s wrong with that?
Yes it Persephone. It was the only myth I could think of at 11pm (which is past my bedtime). Thanks for the comments I don’t know when/if I will get around to editing this one but I will definitely think about those last four lines more.
