If the devil were a woman, it would be her.
An undercover gypsy ready to curse with that cold, hard stare.
Medusa in disguise, black soulless eyes,
Fills me with anger and dread.
Eyes that have no purpose other than to chastise and hate.
Unfeeling, unflinching they look right through me,
As if I never even existed,
As if I were more invisible than air.
Pupils that are permanently fixed into a tight contraction,
Tighter than her hardened jaw and pursed lips.
A low brow, to shadow the infectious, callousness of
Evil and hate that emanate from her Corneas of Hell.
A misery that doesn't even love company but takes pleasure
In destroying me with one blackened look.
As if I belong on the bottom of her shoe and will never be worthy
Of anything, not even her loathsome gaze.
Eyes that haunt me, make me feel so small,
Forever unforgiving, I flinch in their presence.
A need to slap some sense into her, to see me in a different light,
A need to shake those eyes, until they soften for a moment,
And scream at her;
“Wake up, wake up you evil bitch! Aren't you burdened with those heavy Bags of hatred that have taken root under your lush lashes?
It was just a disagreement and so long ago,
Can't you see you are imprisoned by the past?”
I have a need to see the real woman behind those cold hard beady eyes,
Maybe then, I can stop hating her ugly, spiteful, putrid presence,
And start to understand and begin to love, the woman behind the Devil.
Yay! So, the dry spell is over, I am no longer creatively constipated!
Thanks for all of your comments they helped a lot.
A special thanks to these two bloggers:
Rich at Adventures Of A Corn Turtle Hunter and Miss Nikki at Life's A Bitch, you two really inspired me to tap into something that irritates me and for some reason this woman on the island that I know popped into my head and I had to write about it. See, not liking someone can actually be a useful tool to getting over writers block. Actually, it seems that anything that really emotionally revs you up, seems to get rid of creative constipation.
Lesson learned, thanks guys!
