I am…

I AM the whore you’d wish to fuck,
I AM the mother of your children,
I AM the lover you long for
and the fiancé you want to become your wife.

I AM the storm
and the calm surrender.
I AM the hurricane in your dreams
and the dark forest you never enter.

I AM an animal,
I AM the Holy Priestess.
I AM the Oracle
and I AM the beggar.

I AM the most luminous light
and the darkest darkness.
I AM the flesh
and the smell of sex.
I AM the open arms
in your times of need.

I AM your sister
and I AM your daughter.
I AM the sage grandmother
I AM the nurturing woman.
