You break my heart easily as a wishbone

I asked you to mend it and then atone

But you left me standing quite alone

You found me, but ended us all too soon

Life is midnight now, touched by light of the moon

Sunlight will not shine again, even at noon.

Tarot Reading

Sneaking away from their neighborhood the lovers wanted to find out what the traveling carnival offered. The young couple entered the fortune teller’s tent with great expectations. They had just decided to marry and hoped a beautiful future would be told by tarot cards. Growing up in a strict atmosphere, they had no base of knowledge of such things, but had heard rumors of this woman’s ability, and anticipated a thrilling experience.

Not surprised by the atmosphere, a dim, dust covered crystal ball, and dark colored drapery surrounded the scowl-faced woman. She motioned for them to be seated and lit a candle. It was only a slight luminescence but an unpleasant scent began to fill the small space. She looked over the couple as if she could see into their minds and they shifted in their seats. Clasping hands together, they tried to remain nonchalant, but she was aware of their emotions.

She spread a few tarot cards face down on the cloth and asked a few questions, while sizing up their responses. Then her fee was provided and she began to tell their future. “This card says your marriage will be a happy one, as shown by the sun card, here.” The next card she faces up is the moon card, and says, “your life will take an unexpected turn.” The woman turns over another card, a reversed temperance card. “There will be upheaval in your relationship. And here is when tragedy strikes”, as she reveals the wheel of fortune card, and a reversed death card. I am sorry to tell someone will contract a terminal health condition.”

The young lovers just stare at the cards, not able to comprehend their seemingly ill fate. The woman continues, revealing the last card drawn. “This card for you means loneliness”, as she shows a reversed hermit card. They look at her questioning the results and ask who will be the one to die. “The cards do not say.” was her only answer. She blew out the candle ending the session and they stumbled out of the tent.

As a result, the couple felt they could no longer marry with such a future ahead and decided to spend their lives apart. The fortune teller was happy to have ruined another pair of lovers’ lives just as her own young life was ruined, making her a bitter, hateful woman.

Song Lyric Sunday

***

Empty Space” is a song by British singer James Arthur. The song was released as a digital download and for streaming on 19 October 2018 by Columbia Records[1] as the second single from Arthur’s third studio album, You. The song was written by Arthur along with Richard Boardman, Pablo Bowman, Nick Gate and produced by Dan Priddy, Mark Crew and Digital Farm Animals.

Talking about the song, Arthur said, “This song is for anyone who has ever deeply loved and lost someone dear to them, and is then faced with the struggle of trying to fill that void. It is about coming to terms with the fact that only that special person can truly fill the empty space.”

At Last

I feel the air move from my left side and I turn toward it, slowly, at your presence, even though you slyly move quietly. For a moment I am lost in the perfume of your being so close and I breathe you in like a salty sea breeze.

You’ve come so far for this meeting, and the sight of you turns my blood to warm gel in my veins, such an easy welcomed sensation to finally have you near. I embrace you quickly, and hold you tight, knowing our limited time together now must last a lifetime.
