Risen Anew

Under autumn’s foliage
crimson reds
charcoal oranges
browns crushed to gold.
Crisp air
frost covered grass
shattered glass
crinkles beneath my feet.
Breath comes out
vapour in the air
simple chill
the type that stings
when one first stirs.
Apple pink cheeks
scented lips on mine
taste the last golden rays of summer
peaks of time
send me up
send me down
now though I know the difference.
Grim tidings
autumn use to bring
sullen days
grey clouds
simmering overhead.
I felt broken down
battered
lifting my head
a chore that seemed insurmountable.
Time clicked by
snail’s pace
crushed beneath a burden of blackness
crawl I did
through day and night
knees blooded
hands scraped
I no longer cared.
Here I lay
so my epithet began
soul shattered
life lost
wait no
I do not want to go.
Surge of fire.
Rage.
No more shall I be this puppet
danced upon the strings of the past
time has come
let go.
Rising
strength from head to toe
phoenixed ash
glory a robe I wear
for I am woman
for I am finally myself
listen to my voice roar.

Obstinate

Tick tock
where’s the clock
already I am scared
for when midnight comes
the beast will run
filling me with dread.
Fingers digging
‘neath the bed hiding
I know he can’t see me.
Fuck no.
Dragged out
nails digging into the floor
scratch marks
do not think I went softly
do not think I did not cry.
The monster came
the monster did bite
and forever more
I shall fight.
I know what I face.
I know what I faced.
I am a Princess.
I am a Warrior.
I am that woman  you fear.
Why?
l know what I want
I know what I need…
Never again
will I fall to my knees.
