Chauvenism



Under false pretenses you stared , without wavering . In fixed gaze , hovering as grey clouds . A ponderous sneer that shatters my every sense of stealth . I feel concluded , empty , as if my surface is my all , and eludes all that is the rest of me . Here I am , eyes closed , drifting through and dreaming of gracing the open air , hoping for a whirlwind to lift me far beyond your vile eyes , tearing into the cloth that capes my severed soul . I too need a feathered breeze to cool my unblemished naked skin . Instead , your prying eyes holds me captive under thick blanket like clothing that burns into the depths of my mind . You own no reign , locked in an uninvited persuit of degradation . To this day and age , let it be known . In this day and age , let me be heard . On this day and age , let me break free . I defy chauvenism thus I'll defy your actions and persuit my own .
