She was addicted to chaos, they said;
thrived on drama and mayhem
Only satisfied after creating
some sort of nearly insurmountable conflict in her life,
which she then had to painstakingly
save herself from

They said she whored herself
For an audience
, or for sport
An actress in a play whose curtain never fell
Truly, though, she was only proving to the world
That the only hero she needed
she'd already found
