Raven hair tucked back

No flyaway strands

Lips painted nude

Kohl-lined eyes

cheeks sun-kissed



And her dress

the fall 

accentuated the highs

suppressed the lows

exuded confidence



Rain-drops on her lobes

sparkled, as she traipsed

the crescent moon winked

on her décolletage, as she sighed

Quiet contentment



How could she be real?

They busied themselves to find the flaws

And when they failed

Disheartened –

they christened her

    From the last stanza of the poem (and as per the thoughts of those who are the faceless “they”), it seems to me that witches are actually the ones without fault.
    Witch or no witch, who cares? A woman’s confidence is her armour. Opinions of misogynists don’t matter, nor should they.

      Its good to know how you feel about confident women. Sadly, many men and women do not feel the same – their insecurity makes them label confident women wrongly. You’re right – ‘opinions of misogynists don’t matter!’

        Well, for me, an inspirational woman is one who decides to dump the opinions of such misogynists in the trash can and chooses to achieve success and fly above such mortals. Confidence is a key ingredient, no doubt.
        Glad to know that you agree on the fact that opinions of misogynists don’t matter. The women need to realize this. Hopefully they will in near future.

    It saddens me that we’re so quick to pull others down, particularly when other women do it to each other.

      Yes. It comes so easily especially to women.
