Heroine

Heroine

She was a storm 
that kept you calm
a passionate challenge and defeat

She was unpredictable
like lightning 
igniting your fire
and keeping you awestruck

She was forceful
like a tornado
sweeping through your mind
captivating your thoughts

She was intense
like a blizzard
making you anxious 
for the warmth of her body

She was dangerous
like a hurricane
flooding your soul
and stealing your heart

She would let you drown
so she could save you with her kiss.

It’s your life…

she became cold to her surroundings
her survival method was frowning
fighting for everyone’s happiness 
and only known for haughtiness

she was numb to normal
chaos felt cordial
hiding behind frozen eyes
she’s been told endless lies

everything she hoped for,
everything she dreamed,
only made her a working fiend
and it was never for greed

she lost her spark, 
and her world turned dark,
she challenged her morals,
she confronted her spirit,
she lacked her smile, 
and that’s not her style.

She was desperately broken,
Wisely unspoken,
Questioning devotion,
and just going through the motions.

Strong enough to choose,
Smart enough to justify, 
and brave enough to gamble.
