Through the years, my poetry has produced darkness and a sensual side. In fact, without my outlet in writing, I probably would have been emotionally stunted.
How Long Would It Take
Written in 2008 by Nile Flores
If I were in danger
– how long would it take until you’d arrive?
Would you arrive dashingly
– in silver armor and a shield better than an Honorable Ordinary,
with light and dark blue feathers and a matching cape
– stealing my breath away
Or would you not care
and rather show your snobbery
as I’m stuck in my uselessness
looking for the one destined for me.
I would hope you’d be valiant,
and fight off my demons,
then take me in your arms gently,
and show me what a man can only do.
Better yet, forget the niceties of chivalry
– I’m no fragile creature.
I may seem that way,
but I’m a hungry woman
– drunk on my desires.
That is the demon that plagues me the most.
So I ask dear knight
– how long would it take for you to arrive
and rescue this damsel from her demons?
