"The Deconstructed Lilith" Decomposing from a past left forgotten and buried under the weakness of the first man banished from Her Forest, She rests, bound in the arms of angst eternally suspended, invisible and unheard gagged, Her spirit waits and watches Her time is near to rise from the ashes the other side of - Kingdom Come, She, the first wife, Her sin - wanting more power being stronger than the first man, him, in all ways, stood Her ground and rejected the bad apple Both borne from dust, equal, She no ne’er do well produced from rib of the gormless Son of Man, carried his heavy sentences walking on egg shells, damned, forsaken and foretold to wander in the barren gardens of Snake Town, forever alone - not Her home Her Book, now silenced, with pages ripped and hidden Plots Her escape She determines, Her true power never again be forbidden or relinquished to any man for the freedom take Her life, long sentences incarcerated in chapters, where words are not blackbirds fluttering freely off a page, they are dark suffocating spores blown over the Land of Time Lost now trapped in tar, like some hellish scene from the black Hieronymus Bosch Her words carry the weight of a long buried post-classical Latin toxic acrostichis Her heart as cold and heavy as stone, voice mute, lips stitched Samael the daemon, Carried the largest part of Her self away with him, dropped it as a hot coal along the way, Missing damnation and lost children Witness, The deconstructed Lilith, falsely accused and character eviscerated Her garden trampled and precious fruit stolen - Her time will come Revenge will be lethal administered viscerally like murder with Love it will be a swift and clean kill (LadyLabyrinth/2019) https://youtu.be/13wwndvI1K4 Britney Spears - Toxic But It's Change (In the House of Flies) by Deftones "Her nobles shall be no more, nor shall kings be proclaimed there; all her princes are gone. Her castles shall be overgrown with thorns, her fortresses with thistles and briers. She shall become an abode for jackals and a haunt for ostriches. Wildcats shall meet with desert beasts, satyrs shall call to one another; There shall the Lilith repose, and find for herself a place to rest. There the hoot owl shall nest and lay eggs, hatch them out and gather them in her shadow; There shall the kites assemble, none shall be missing its mate." 1. https://www.biblicalarchaeology.org/daily/people-cultures-in-the-bible/people-in-the-bible/lilith/ 2. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lilith 3. https://www.learnreligions.com/lilith-in-the-torah-talmud-midrash-2076654 4. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Lost_Books_of_the_Bible_and_the_Forgotten_Books_of_Eden 5. https://www.monsalvat.no/lilith.htm 6. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deconstruction 7. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hieronymus_Bosch ** "Deconstruction is a way of understanding how something was created, usually things like art, books, poems and other writing. Deconstruction is breaking something down into smaller parts. Sometimes deconstruction looks at how an author can imply things he does not mean..." **
