Gone are the days
Of you wanting to be above me,
Cutting my wings
And throttling me.
So far, I have battled
Cursed and raged,
Tried to swim and float
Sometimes barely to survive.
I have fought and fought
Even when the war ended,
I tried just to stand and walk
But all you did was pull me back, stranded.
So far, equality is all I wanted
Rage was never for granted,
I’d smile and let it all go
Only if you’d let me grow.
You should have breathed
A calming sigh of relief,
Walking on different treads
We could have lived happily, I believe.
But you let your ego rise
In claiming to be a little superior,
But my declaration should have sufficed
When I told you I was a gushing warrior.
So far, I wanted equality
But now, I want revenge.
You are done with your monopoly
But now, from the gut I’ll make you wrench.
I’ll rip you apart
Your body, your mind, your soul.
I’ll drink your bleeding heart
And throw you into an abysmal black hole.
Your smiles will fade
Your laughter must evade,
You’ll seek my permission
Even for your tears’ abscission.
For long you had me chained
Now you’ll taste its flavor,
For long you had my dreams restrained
Now you’ll know what its to long for a savior.
Every time I tried to soar
You’ll make it even difficult to smile,
Making me feel like a centaur
Fidgeting betwixt myriad lifestyles.
Try and tell me I didn’t try
To make something of me I persistently slogged,
All that happened was my eyes went dry
Even the tears rejecting to keep my eyes clothed.
I’ll not let anything go
I promise I’ll rip you apart,
I’ll wear the iron and steely trousseau
And display at home, my gory work of art.
I’ll throw my rage, my anger, and my morale
Over you like a listless mourning shroud.
And you’ll be shocked at my open advances
While, I sear and soar like a magellanic cloud.
I swear to God, I’ll not cede
I don’t want equality; I want revenge,
From the ashes where you buried me
I’ll rise from there and eat you like air.
