Dear Diary 021914


dear diary

there is something very, very strange i must tell you,
yesterday, when i was walking on a path through the forest
i saw my love fluttering above, whoosh right over my head
there was a noise, a tree branch snapping, and my love fled
so i looked deeper into the forest. and i saw him landing
by one of the many tall pines, yes this was yesterday afternoon
i called to him, love it’s me your true love please come back soon.
then i saw he was followed by another bird, and i saw this was her
the enchantress all dressed in black, as black as a moonless night
I thought to myself, i will have to vanquish this evil with my light
i could only watch as my love went up into the air, and flew away
through the quiet snowy forest, a midnight raven followed him closely

The world is full of meat and drink,

In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
