The store had not been here yesterday
shades of candles, books and bell

Where was this place a day ago?

"The Precipice"

In the Autumn 
she wore a wedding veil
A cold winter would lift it
Kiss her lips passionately to

late roll call

“Well, that’s insanity for you” 
some snakes would hiss
others rapture-faced

More terrifying than ghosts
Placing eye of newt in cauldrons
Pure evil in our fantasy books
Horribly foul and mean in faerie tales.
A frozen heart places children in ovens

Premium Member How Did Wiccans Acquire A Bad Rep
How Wiccans acquired a bad rep is not clear.
Misogynist bullies afraid of these women’s light,
A young teen with an ugly heart of jealous fear,

Their ambitions even surround every other person behind their city wall.

Black Messiahs are just humans, but their beauty makes oceans roar.

Exposed majestically in a catwalk,
Principle looking personality considered for deliberation.
Optimistic to achieve the world most valuable models award.
Built from positive cementation and aspiration,
Indeed, her skin proves she`s never coward.

Thou Art a Witch

Though many more the Puritans came to malign.
