In judgement fall

You stand in judgement without knowledge of her 

Giving stern looks and harsh words 

Seeing only that which you want to see no matter 

Whether it contains truth or reason 

You think you have her pegged stripped and bare 

Laid before your leering eyes 

To scrutinise and take just a little more of her soul 

But now the protection you cannot see is spinning forth 

She isn’t helpless and defeated 

Building herself back up and soothing from within 

Her defences may look down 

You may think like a fallen fighter she can be counted out 

But like the whirling swirling mist she will devour 

The world you think you have torn away 

Was only a facade underneath her being thrums with need 

Her walls built of stone eyes of slate watch 

You see nothing nothing at all 

The warrior she is fighting back to the surface 

Do not underestimate her capacity to rebuild and conquer

I have written since I can remember, devouring the stories of Roald Dahl under the covers by torchlight. I have always loved fairy tales, myths and magic. A good deal of the things I write has some truth in it. Others, not. I’m pleased you dropped by, please feel free to leave me a comment or if you’re kind enough to share that’s fine. ☺️
