A Quote by Lucille Iverson on women, name-calling, and self-determination

For you, who have
Condemned me as
Witch, as
Mother,     – I
Have no more
Any pity;
For you who have
Despised me as
Succubi, as

My Passion is
Mine, nor am I
Vampire, nor
Banshee, nor
Screamer, nor
Waiting;     – I
Have turned away, and     I
Face a distance I
Have not run;      – I
Raise my fist beside the
Door of My Dreams and I
Take Time,
My Time,
All of it
In my Hands.

Lucille Iverson
