The Goddess Within Me

Can you feel it?
Stealthy
wending
cold fingers pressing.
Given color
violent shades of grey and black
thunder storms that ride upon the heart
crackling thunder piercing the soul
falling to my knees
screaming at the skies
desperation making me weak.
Head back
eyes swallowed whole in blackness
shuddering
vile arms wrapping around
holding me still
as from broken mouth
roars
pours
agony upon agony
scar upon scar
violently shredding
tender aura
until no more can I take.
Now I lay me down to sleep
The Goddess my wisdom to keep.
Should I die ‘afore I wake
The Goddess my wisdom to take.
Withstood the storm
on my knees
on my stomach
hands clutching muddied earth
feeling the festering
boiling sadness
anger that borders on homicidal
reborn lamb
clutched within her dappled hand
found
no longer forgotten.

Rawr!

I was that girl
faded
quiet
always on the outskirts
looking in
lost
alone
afraid.
I was that teenager
wild
frantic
lost
a whirl storm
emotions
deadly
unforgiving
I lost myself to hell.
Young woman.
Mother.
During it all
part of me
lodged still
in bars of my own creating
mired in the cesspool of past abuses
unseen
unwanted
until addiction’s hold passes.
Today
victory reigns
head held high
as I behold
who I have become
who I want to be
who I need to be…..
Caring
Empathetic
Loving
Wanting
Dreaming
Desiring
Life.
I am what society now calls middle age.
I refuse to accept their constraints.
I am a Goddess.
I am a Lioness.
I am a Queen.
Never again will I forget.
