BlackGoddess

She hides
Behind a mask of transparency
Says what others need
Owns truths relative.
By the time I knew
Who she was we were done.

She is a divine hero goddess
In the story she tells
Me being private
Allowed her
To paint me the villain
In her openness.

Hiding me too
Behind her mask.

So when I’m moved to speak
On my own behalf
She already has
Littered the path,
With large shards of glass.
Some people never believe
I am who I say I am.
