poor
forgotten
goddess

did you expect
your reign
to be endless?

were you
a goddess
of  war

in
the days
of  yore?

or
a goddess
of  love

teaching skills
now
undreamed of ?

was
your talent
to conjure?

or
did you foretell
the future?

did
your
eyes

see
your own
demise?

were
there
discrepancies

in
your worshipers’
expectancies?

or
did your glass house
expose

weaknesses
to
your foes?

gone from
memory
now

no longer
a
sacred cow

it must be
a strange
sensation

or maybe
a welcome
liberation

from the weight
of  all that
power

constantly
threatening
to devour

it’s my
arrogance
it’s true

for me
to pity
you

yes…
i
can see

how lovely
to be
free

floating
in and out
on the tide

with no
vanity
or pride

no
more
responsibilities

just
endless
possibilities
