My destiny calls from the depths of the well,
The sound of the water my own death knell.
Spirits pass upwards and through the stone,
Leaving behind pennies people have thrown.

The well is filled with the souls of others,
All of whom strayed from the same path.
Every fate as damned as another's,
Consumed by this ancient curse's wrath.

Mysteries surround this age-old dwelling,
I, a servant of this ancient foretelling.
My heart lies at its base,
My life removed without a trace.
Came to me as I was trying to get to sleep :P

Oh, I love this piece! As I read through, I couldn't decide if it was a "fantasy"-style piece, or a metaphor, and that made it all the more intriguing! Very well done!

Thank you :D It was intended as fantasy but who knows what hidden meanings you could find if you read it as an extended metaphor? :P

Glad you decided to write it down! Poems tend to escape so easily.
