is frankenstein the monster or the man?

Frankenstein Reimagined

I wanted to be God;

craft Adam and Eve from my own bones draw Lilith with my blood carry Heaven and Hell in my ribs hold Eden in my hands.

I took knives and stitches to my skin –

no one said God was beautiful; just terrifying

Beyond humanity is immortality in the shape of thousands of wings and burning stars in the place of eyes.

Carve away the body I was given: I am meant to be g r e a t , not good

Needed no saving: I am the apple and the snake and the cross on the hill.

I am sin & savior – monster & maker – Doctor & creation.

God is not beautiful but He is loved; I break the mirror and don’t bleed.

I run with speed beyond possibility but the gunshots echo behind me.

Hubris is in all men; we never see it until it’s too late to be saved, our hearts bleeding on our tongue.

I wanted to be God; Lucifer, too, was beautiful once.

I wanted to be God;

I want to kill the monster so I bury myself and pray for forgiveness.
