Spinning

Trigger warning: This poem is inspired by someone’s struggle with an eating disorder and other mental health concerns. It’s not explicitly stated but it’s an underlying theme. The world was spinning A thousand buildings blurring past A thousand people through the glass A strange new world of too much light that only brightened in theContinue reading “Spinning”

Weep for the Widow

She runs like a wild deer through the midnight wood She decimates a dozen men with one laser look She fights like a lioness, she hunts like a beast She’s deadly and she knows it, woman of the east A master assassin and she does it in style But nobody knows why she never smilesContinue reading “Weep for the Widow”

The Devil’s Lover

From the moment I first breathed, I learned to respect what was not mine Then why, oh heaven, do I still yearn for one look from those fierce eyes? If there was a goddess of desire she would have those lips of red But she has fallen into hellfire for she lies in the devil’sContinue reading “The Devil’s Lover”

The Mad Titan

When I was young, I used to dream of hungry monsters and evil queens who made the children thrash and scream When I was young, I used to read tales of tyrants filled with greed who loved to watch their victims bleed   But I never thought I’d see the day that Lord Vader tookContinue reading “The Mad Titan”

Queen of Atlantis

Moonlight Queen

Sky still burning, fate still turning The world came blazing into smoke I lay in ashes, singed black lashes  Glimpsing my life before it broke   False crimes on my name, body bound to the pyre The witch takes the blame, so they set me on fire Better a traitor than a coward White flagsContinue reading “Moonlight Queen”

Clean

Once upon a time, I had a dream I was bathed in lights and flowers like a woodland fairy queen It seemed so simple all those years ago Little did I know I used to think that glory came for free – if I worked hard and stayed strong, I could achieve my victory IContinue reading “Clean”

These Scarlet Lips

Trigger warning: sexual assault These scarlet lips were taught to smile, like all good girls with class and style Take your seat, don’t rock the boat Keep your head down and never say no A wandering girl with no roots and no home No one to save me, but I wasn’t alone These scarlet lipsContinue reading “These Scarlet Lips”
