Fool’s Gold

Inspired by Moonwashed Musings Prompt #137 – Ethereal &
Reena’s Exploration Challenge #275

the ethereal substance of goodness
eludes those whose greed
dominates their life’s ambitions

wreckless disregard
sabotages the beauty they believe they gain
it’s worthless in the scheme of living

life is to be lived nobly
beware, anything gained dishonorably is nothing of substance
commandeering the world around us leaves one with nothing

Wicked Strength

Moonwashed Weekly Prompt – Transcending

they called her an evil woman
yet her transcending beauty drew me in
red, fiery locks promising danger
her spikey halo protecting her power

remember what will happen
should you cross me

slowly she lifts the box to reveal the skull
of the man who dared to lay claim to her

remember that i am stronger
