Strong Girl Blues

The girl can’t help it

when she disobeys her mother at night.

She has dreams of turning destiny

into a tangible crystal ball, squeezing

time right out.

She can’t help it

in fact,

she would thrash it

against the library walls,

until such force would

rip

the pages off the history books.

The girl can’t help it if she acts violent.

She is another’s

legacy,

slaying the darkness once more, who else  

Can help it?

the unknowable it that longs for her,

life under a monstrous kismet

waiving the last sun goodbye,

needs her, feeds off her, but  

she can’t.  

And for all the times

she saved the world, she lost in love.

A hero in love died many times,

waiving the last sun goodbye.
