Sexual Musings :: Slay

“I have battled my way through every war my young body has faced, entirely without the companionship of a man. How many times have I raised my eyes to the glare of the sun to find nothing but dust in their wake? Their footprints still trembling in the dirt, the distant crow of their heartbeat like a vulture circling above, their shield tossed to the hot ground with a note scribbled in sweat: “You are too good for me.” And as my demons make their ways out of the trees all around me, I know I’d rather fight alone with the steel in my spine than with daggers of pretty, false words the men have flung at me in their retreat.”
