Barefoot in Paris

Dawn breaks, she wakes Runs to work in bare feet Torn dress, wears less To afford enough to eat Long day, factory Blistered hands, tired mind Street is cold, town is old Alleys smell like cheap wine And the night never ends The rest of us don’t understand And she scans the crowd for friendlyContinue reading “Barefoot in Paris”

Exodus from La La Land

I might have stood a hundred feet if life was kind and love was sweet I’m not a dreamer I can handle the truth I’m a believer But I can’t believe you   You cut my hair and made me blind You said I was too dangerous like every girl who won’t fall in lineContinue reading “Exodus from La La Land”

Volcano Eyes

In the mighty mountains of the north dwelled the golden phoenix Goddess of fire, queen of ash, her beauty rivaled Venus Most powerful, most worthy, but exiled and betrayed Yet it is the hunter, not the gazelle who should truly be afraid For two cold years she lay in wait, trapped ‘neath the avalanche ofContinue reading “Volcano Eyes”

Empress

Twelve years in Siberia The winter kills a man but a man I am not Trains slice through the storm To a future full of sun and a bestselling plot Higher, higher, don’t look down A girl has no name but she can bring home the crown Men of steel and men of stone haveContinue reading “Empress”

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 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

I used to stand in the golden sun Crowned in dawn, bathed in glory But my empire has come undone A legend lost, a forgotten story   I held the stratosphere, the holy grail with my fair and gentle king We planned for victory, but plans do fail and I heard the rebels sing  Continue reading “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”
