project to get out of my writer's block :/
words from here: http://sapphoa.tumblr.com/post/147011046620/words-about-gods
"the denial of gods from mythology and legend"
and i think
we do this even now
blind ourselves to the gods of our modern-day
the girl who sits next to me in english
and practically radiates constant panic and a sweet, sunny disposition
who compliments me just because she thinks of it
and is as tactile with me as i am with her
she is RS,
and i know her well
the kind of god that steps down so others can step up
quietly evaluating her worth
the friend of all and enemy of none
a clever political maneuver to stay safe from the battleground
though by her, it is not meant as such
she does not see herself that way, though.
doesn't see the delicate godliness that twines its way through her bones
the curl of her fingers
the laugh sticking in her throat
and in denial RS sinks,
sinks and sinks and sinks
drinking in her surroundings while her head dips under the water
liquid resting on the shelf of her cheekbones
but it is alright -
she is a likeable god.
if she cannot keep herself afloat,
others will do it for her.
we do not deny her place in the stars.
