COOKING POT I looked around me, everything was dark as if my own eyes were completely shut, that the would have come to an end, my eyelids were very heavy,- like I had a sleeping spell on me, I was seeing things that were given me very bad dreams,- the stars are all on dim they skip around the sky, upon the sea, I have seen the reflections of he standing over me,- the colored moon beamed upon the land upon everything my eyes could see; I tried so hard to open my eyes But I couldn't it was as if I was dead, I dreamed many dreams in my head I see things of an ancient time, I felt I have been bond to my bed; as if I was quite insane of true madness, in my mind, I saw a different set of eye looking back at me from another time, I see slaves dancing around me, crying out to a king that stands before me, the sky was dark; the fair is hot; I could see a big cooking pot, words of their time weren't of mine, you could feel the evil all around; the anger browed in the pot, words of truth weren't in their mouths, lies and so much hate with not faith, Witches are casting out their evil spells, giving a queen life of a living hell, their face turned to me as I started to scream, I have seen many things that come to me like something of darkening dreams, they were very old holding no youth, I forget your name they would say In a cloud of smoke; frogs are being tossed in the old cooking pot, a chicken tongue, blackbird eyes, bugs of the desert land, the thunder in the ancient sky roared while the storm moved on by; I see holly ones being persecuted; the words of accurate knowledge was told to never be promoted on the land where the old witches stand on blood, stained sand, that was a command, words of truth are forbidden; enemies casting names of thee into the pot of hell while somewhere rings a bell; bodyguards took the prison ones out of the cage; those who have lost their way, ravens are flying around to eat up on the dead the ones who have lost their heads, words of temptations of the flash dancing around the cooking pot, my body started feeling cold I didn't have any more control while lies where being told, my eyelids were heavy as they could be I was cast into a deep sleep.
