If I was…
If I was Medusa,
I would lock you in an impenetrable stare
And watch you as you slowly turned to stone,
Relishing at the agony that augments in your eyes…
If I was Venus,
I would lure you into my realm of fantasies
And strip you of all your defenses,
Then unleash my demons and watch as they devour you whole…
If I was Nemesis,
I would patiently wait for that unexpected moment
When all your guards are down
And slowly – cruelly – give you a taste of cold, cold revenge…
If I was Persephone,
I would seduce your pride with promises of immortality
And hand it to you, on a platter of gold and roses
In the realms of darkness and despair that make up my kingdom; my underworld…
If I was a goddess,
I would abuse my divine powers to inflict upon you what would seem to me but a portion of what you have graced my life with.
But I am not.
I am only human.
My only power is to forget.
And forget you, I shall…
