The Goddess Within

Dormant she lay
For decades
Lay in chains
In a dungeon of belief
Her pious slaver
Playing “servant” while
Subjugating secrets
Unfairly secreted away
She finally broke the chains
But habit, her new keeper,
Kept her broken
Kept her fearful in the dark
Soul shattered and ashamed
Guilty of her power, her divinity
Until you came

Gently you crept

Softly you sang

Secretly you dressed the pain
With bandages of love
Bringing the balm of a new belief
A new faith
The powerful embrace
Of acceptance
finally in ecstatic freedom
She rose from that pit
The goddess cried your praise
Whispered adoration
Liberated love
Ruling her castle now
She seeks again
Her gentle savior
Her passionate knight
Her worshipped lover
The only one
Who could free
The Goddess Within
