Untitled Word of the Day Poem #22

‘Hey diddle diddle
the cat and the fiddle
the cow jumped over the moon……..’
We are asked to believe
to admit
that there is more
that life is not as we know it
but built upon fairy tales
strata
layers
ring upon ring
marking each day
each decade
each century.
Kings have swung.
Queens have lost their heads.
Bowing before common ground
see the Devil
swear to be his bride
if only
he turns
looks the other way
let me flail
drown
second guess
before scooping me free.
Sorry am I
rhymes spill off my tongue
no one wants
this girl
woman
easier to call bitch
build a wall
a jail
keep away
a game we play.
Guess why I do
what I do.
Do you see?
Without me
he would devour the earth.
I submit to sin
to anger
rage
black soul
devoured
bright light
scoring my mind
crawl forward
blind
I believe
I know
I guess
I am the world’s Queen
able to eradicate fear
pain
bloated
sucking in the darkness
bow before
sickened
gorged on death
I fall……
Good bye
so long
fade away
do I
thank you for the memories.

Warrior Queen

I hear you.
Knocking on my door.
Black beast
gaping jaws
come to eat me. 
Awake
Must stay awake
for than 
the monster cannot get me
Right?
Awake I stay
Hidden from his gaze. 
Wait….
you are the monster.
reach into my brain
pull it out
wrench free 
emotions of any sorts.
Flip free
no longer in pain
wearing a Cheshire grin.
Slow dance
reel to reel
flames in my heart
broken 
shattered.
Fuck you.
I am done little boy.
I ain’t playing no games
I am a woman
I know my worth.
My worth is more to me
than your weight in gold.
I know who I am
I know what I want
I got lost
but now am back.
Warrior Queen
Renegade
I am the Godess.
Hopeful once more
of treasured dreams
lipstick love
baby doll schemes
anything I can dream of.
