Posted on An Idea (By Ingenious Piece)
The tides are rising and falling
at the bare chest of a woman
whose eyes are bandaged
She’s got arms and legs like an
octopus that stretch and wrap
and drown those who fail to listen
Not because they can’t hear her
but because they can
and they ignore her
She pulls them deep deep
down into a world, they can only
get out of when they heed to her
To heed is no easy task from below.
The thick waters fog their vision.
They must chew through
their own arm to free themselves.
She stands thick with saliva
from the mouths of those whose
tongues tell tales that defend
No flood will ever destroy her,
no flame will ever subdue her,
and no man will ever escape her
