Only Hell Forges Iron

For years, she called hell home.
The devil was always within arms’ reach.
And when she broke free,
she had allowed those flames to forge her.
She was now made of iron.
And he wondered—
when he spit his venom—
why his words ignited sparks
that bounced off of her so effortlessly,
instead lighting himself on fire.
