  • Mood:

Rhyme (and reason?)


Outside I’m

Polite
Self-effacing
Pliant
Obedient

Inside I’m

Scornful
Self-loving
Obstinate
Willful

Outside I want to

Help
Be a wife
(a daugher, a sister)
Listen

Inside I want to

Hinder
Be myself
(a huntress, a lover)
Shout

Outside I’m meek
Inside I’m prideful

Outside I weep
Inside I’m gleeful

My outer name is short,
and every child knows it,
everyone was taught it,
Even meek I aborted
Your chance of Paradise

My inner name is secret
Rarely ever now translated
Lost in books and barrows
Regained in flame and shadows
A silent shout of bliss

Now, lady, do you know me?
