what have they done to you,
dear girl with the rainbow hair?
have they saddled you with their insatiable thirst for perfection,
my sweet girl with the rainbow hair?
have they demonized the ground you dare stand,
fearless girl with the rainbow hair?
have the non-believers tore you piece from piece,
my messed up girl with the rainbow hair?
the world will always tear you down,
tender girl with the rainbow hair.
you were never supposed to use your voice,
my deafening girl with the rainbow hair.
do not let them defeat you,
sweet heartbroken girl with the rainbow hair.
whilst machismo is still alive,
the girls will never be safe.
he’s addicted to the high
from egotistical joy rides. he revels
in self pride, arrogance apparent in
his stride. but his confident exterior
is built from narcissistic lies. he can’t handle
hearing “no”- rejection leaves him mortified.
this is not the first time
he's come to me ****-eyed.
he asks for my consent, politely i deny.
he refuses to listen, preparing to defy.
my fear becomes palpable-
“no, no, no!” yet his hands
are on my thighs. “we have to tonight.”
his words cut like a knife.
i don’t understand why
i’m forced to comply. (this is my body,
don’t i get to decide?)
my bones calcify, my heart’s
a ship that’s capsized
i’ve been dehumanized and
yet i'm forced to act alive.
i look in the mirror
and let out a long sigh-
is it his soul or mine
that’s been demonized?
Their skin is translucent
Veins crawl across their skin like vines
Their builds slim but rippling with muscles
Their eyes glow red
Color of blood from a beating heart
Pumping pumping pumping
They glow brighter as they spot their prey
Greasy black wings on their backs
Reflections of screaming faces seem to show
Faces of agony and fear
Right before they feed
Angels sent to earth because heaven didn't want them their
The devil takes them in gives them power
Because he was god's favorite and he was an angel once too
Their sent to punish those
Who escaped death and punishment
To get those who deserve it most
People like you
Sometimes one has to face the Chimera
Attacked from all sides with lethal intensity
Fighting an imaginary demon, a solitary war
Either, one will emerge a winner, or demonized
Tame the Chimera, before it annihilates
Here 'Chimera' is used as 'metaphor'. Chimera, according to Greek Mythology is a monstrous fire-breathing creature composed of the parts of multiple animals.
