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- his desire fortifies.
“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?
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.
