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.

As Simple as That

Gather round my pretties 
for a tale I have to tell:
A time there was once
when murder most foul
occurred not daily 
but at times hourly
in this kingdom 
of warfare and feuds 
the long forgotten yesteryear.
Ha!
Forgotten yesteryear?
More like a reality to this day.
Feuds are larger now
scaled into wars
taking over not towns
but countries
while demigods are fashioned
by wealth
by how often their name is in print
by the amount of followers on social media
not by the quality of their honor.
Time has begun to unravel
threads are being cut
as fiefdoms crop up
starving
enslaving
all people who stand to them
abusing their rights
their children
their wives
to make them bend to knee.
Out of the darkness
the renegade will ride
a steed of iron and ice
seeking out the ones claiming glory
and making them go away.
