It started off as a mistake....

One that was unplanned unexpected but never unwanted....

Time Turned and The Earth Stood Still {repetition}....

.. ..

A story was woven like threads in a carpet {simile}....

Each one so intricately precise that it made a picture so ....

complex that not even Theseus could get out alive {allusion}....

Time Turned and The Earth Stood Still....

.. ..

Then a thread was snagged and the blanket began to unravel ....

It was here a heart was locked away in a box and buried in the basement{imagery/allusion}....

So that it would never have to be mutilated again....

Time Turned and The Earth Stood Still ....

.. ..

The courts masks slipped....

the monsters of the deep crept out and the exterior of human persona's gave way and the awful truth was reveled ....

Unleashing hatred and cruelty from Pandora ’s Box {allusion}....

all because Eve broke the rule and ate the apple....

Time Turned and The Earth Stood Still....

.. ..

And in the dark of night the monsters came to be comfort like a blanket held by a child {metaphor}....

The drug of numbness gave way and engulfed all that was light {metaphor}....

the oubliette filled with strife stabbed life with a knife {personification/assonance}....

Time Turned and The Earth Stood Still....

.. ..

With a last cry unleashed the wish to walk on water was uttered ....

Suffocation....

The fates then brought out their scissors to cut the last thread ....

The burden of doing so angered the sky {personification}....

A flood gave way washing, whipping, all the pain away {alliteration}....

Salvation....

Time Turned and The Earth Stood Still ....

.. ..

hollow spaces of the chest were slowly becoming restored a starving mouth was fed {juxtaposition}....

and a key was found to open a locked box {symbol}....

Time Turned and The Earth Spun....

This is a narrative of my life included are literary terms that i had to use for English but i left them in so that maybe you would be able to connect and figure out the double meanings.
