women of mythology - rusalka


water spirits of the north, they haunt. wee babes unblessed and born out of wedlock, girls and women taken from the the world violently by the hands of men, heartbroken souls who can not go on. cold water fills their lungs and steal their lives away, but they remain tied to this world and the waters where they drowned. the rusalka.

with enchanting voices they sing along the river banks, hair like wet ropes hanging about their shoulders. climbing the trees close by to spot their victims and sing the prettiest of songs, drawing foolish passersby into their trap, forever trying to avenge their own untimely demise. they lure men to their deaths, taking them into the waters where their own lives were snatched. never finding peace, they sing for eternity. rusalka.
