Prediction

The maiden saw it coming

Like the mists off of the sea

A low persistent drumming

Striving to be set free.

She warned, no one took heed

Banging doors she shouted

We’ll all be washed away

Her words they all just doubted.

She told them it will be here soon

Then came the deadly quiet

The tides reacting to the moon.

The sky was black as night.

The sea simply disappeared

A deadly silence fell

The townfolk froze in in fear.

All trapped under a spell.

I told them the maiden wept

But no one did believe.

As in the giant waves swept.

****************

I saw it coming, I had to leave

It’s devistion was my prediction.

I live on, still for them I grieve

Their memories my affliction.

    I imagine it to be an awful prediction knowing what is coming and no one taking any notice. So long as you got to higher ground I guess.

    How horrible for her. Having something important and relevant to say, and being dismissed. Beautifully written, Willow.
