Published on / 25 Chapter(s) / 0 Review(s)
NAPOWRIMO poetry writing challenge. Likely to wind up as a sort of poetry-journal - poems about whatever's on my mind, possibly interspersed with prompts from friends.
Chapter 1, chasing lights
I’m done with chasing will o’ the wisps,
I tell myself –
No more sparks that die too soon.
I’ll stick to drinking the warmth of day,
Or schedule my waning like the moon—
But the fairies laugh if I try to withhold
From sweet, pale roaming.
They have all the power
Of a golden hour,
Or shadow fingers,
Or storm-purple gloaming.
And my muse’s half-siren,
And she’ll toy with my heart until I stay.
