POETRY: "FEMININITY'



"FEMININITY"

What on earth
Would you have me

To do?

I chanted curses
I spelled backwards

I drained his veins
I offered my soul
I got tied naked
Onto your altar.


And I am still here,
Blood running down my lips,

My breast,
My legs.

I am still here
All feminine
And genuine


What on earth
Would you have me

To do?


The Moon's
Caressing me

The Stars
Are melting on me


And you coward!

You forged

My chains of bronze
And left me here

Incomplete
Blemished
Ungratified


I am done.
Let the Horsemen

Rule your earth.

I am done
With those dreading
A female's depth.
