Leviathan The Girl

You cannot quell me

I am a one-man revolution

Built like a scorpion,

Indestructable--

You can freeze me

But I'll eventually

Come to,

Breaking free from the ice in a frigid

Frenzy,

Thirsting

For destruction--

You can blast me,

Set me aflame in a turgid storm of

Splitting atoms,

Nuclear Fission,

But like a phoenix I will rise from the permanent shadows of

Now-dead children,

Screaming for revenge.

 

You cannot break me, so many times broken that the pieces each and every know their place,

Emblazoned memory,

Ancestral cells

Powering every motion back to shore because you can

Hit me

And I will

Laugh

Because the pain is nothing in comparison to what I've felt before--

Every moment of every day and every second of the minutes I waste on slime like you.

 

You cannot kill me

Because I have been flame-hardened in the

Forge of Unmaking,

Crafted from the fires of hardship and

Adversity,

Veins shot through with

Infection and

Bile,

Diseases

Designed to

Do harm

But only succeeding in forcing me to survive or

Die

And a Coates cannot lie still until the

Dust has Died,

Until the

Universe has broken down, the molecules just

Ghosts

Of the machines they once

Dared

To power,

So we remain,

Immortal in our

RAGE,

Hotter than the Blood

Coursing in our

Starfire-eyes

And the

STEAM

Projectile-vomited from our

Bilious Throats.

 

Our tongues are knives and our

Minds

Are swords,

Mightier than your

Impotent pens

Because OUR pens

Glint with the light of a thousand underworld suns that never saw the dark of

Day before,

Consuming your world in the time it takes you to

BLINK

For the

FirstLastOnly time

So you cannot

BEAT me I am

FEROCIOUS We Are

LEGION

And the ice you pick apart will release my

Young

And in the fetid blast of purple inken darkness you will not

SCREAM

Because

LEVIATHAN is not a myth and not a man and not a monster,

He is a

FORCE

Moving through the packed-tight densities of a girl who has been

MurderedSetFreeSwallowedWhole by worlds she only fathoms in the visceral

Caverns of her

Zephyrous ken,

Her ka a streaming whirlwind sent forth from Gods on high to cleanse a world bereft of sense,

Her nimble scythe clearing

Realms

Of their refuse in single deft swipes that leave an audible shine behind,

Ringing out like deep canyon car alarms and echoing into infinity--

Call me Leviathan, then, call me Satan, Lord, Angel, Demon--

Call me Death incarnate for that Is Not Dead Which Can Eternal Lie and I

Stand steady on the ledge knowing

DEATH

CAN NEVER DIE!

 

You can try to demolish what you don't understand,

Tear me apart and desecrate the corpse,

But you cannot destroy a scorpion,

Indestructable,

Or quell the one-man revolution that

I AM!

 

You cannot best me;

I am unstoppable,

So lay down your arms before I raise up mine!

Put down your weapons or force my demise!

I'll only be stronger when like a

Phoenix I
 

Rise.
