god//dess

this body never existed for your dick

my skin does not expect your desperate touch

a pussy built to feel warm desirable love

 

every femme is meant to be worshipped

and i will not be disrespected

lips waiting to be kissed

tasting of honey, the sweetest thing

 

my womb never intended to carry a life

a right hand forever without a ring

i won’t ever want to be someone’s wife

 

god didn’t create me

i did
