A.N-Okay, so there are other things I should be writing, but I need an outlet for the excitement I feel on this, Mark of Athena Day. I so want the book, but sadly I do not have it yet. But when I do, I will just sit myself down somewhere and read, read, read. I sort of hope I get it on a weekend, so school doesn't get in the way. Anyway, this is my first attempt at freeverse, so please let me know what you think.


He was so close.

You can feel h.i.m

H/I/M, whom you've

waited for for so long

— but what if HE'S

CHANGED?

He could be a dirty Roman

now.

Could Y?O?U

s?t?a?n?d it?

Come on, Wise Girl

you're Athena's daughter

(Athena, who's never really cared for h.i.m)

not some silly APHRODITE girl

(though you know her daughters aren't all that silly,

don't you?)

You can handle this.

But, but, your heart whispers

WHAT IF he!s found another g-i-r-l?

Could you take t/h/a/t?

Well, you'll find out soon enough

because there !he! is.

with another girl

— with his ARM

a r o

u n d

her.

(There's a guy with them too,

but that hardly matters)

Because h.e. is

Greek

and

theirs

and (MOST IMPORTANTLY)

HE is YOURS.
