She Glides Like a Pegasus

By Leylah S.

She glides like a Pegasus 

Warm yet so cold

Colorful yet devoid of any color

Gentle yet so hostile 

So fast that all you can see is her gliding in slow motion 

When she dashed by you

You’re washed over by an intense feeling of euphoria 

And almost immediately a sense of dread

She’s ravishingly beautiful 

Yet she appears hideous when your get too close

She comes to you as you are 

The beautiful see her as they are, beautiful and mythical 

Where the dark see her as they are, dreadful, dark, and evil 

So if she comes to you as dreadful it’s not her you should fear, it is yourself
