#AnnabelWrites – All The Women I Will Ever Be

All The Women I Will Ever Be 

Lilith baths in the blood of her enemies

Lady Macbeth plots their deaths

Ophelia drowns for eternities

Miss Havisham goes up in flames

I am all these women

My fires rage

My existence ablaze


Holly Golightly lives in a dream

Daisy Buchanan capture hearts

Juliet falls blindly in love

Elizabeth Bennett is a light in the dark

I am all these women

Pure and light

My heart burning bright


There are so many women I can choose to be

And I want to be them all

From Eve to Annie Oakley

So many histories, so many truths

A myriad of worlds

That I can’t wait to choose

All these women are me
