The Witches of the Southern Hemisphere


The screeching witches are in agony...
Fly by.
A thief with no remorse has set them by...
by bye.
A half moon sets at just after 1 am,
bits and byes.
They cross the Southern Hemisphere,
to cries.
In a cloudless sky like shooting stars
going by.

Oh! the wrongful witches will seek revenge
Taking toil on the acts of perversion
They have been persecuted to.
Beware fiend your days are due tonight
And darkness your toll will ring
And resounding far and wide your
Pain will seem miniscule to the universe of pain.

Love seems silly to my heart,
My heart is silly in love
Take this perfect Sunset
Imprint it unto forever
Forever, forever, forever.

Now my light fades upon
My page of words, upon
... upon the shadow creeping in.
Kiss the twilight
The Elvin delight

Take me to the darkness of night.
Where I can no longer see the words I write.
Into the soul of darkness let me hide,
by bye.
In my image and not God's...
by and bye

    You, son of Midnight!
    Why seek to steal into the soul of night?
    We pray God to spare you from all those nasty witches
    That prowl the night to give humans only itches! (Report) Reply

    Pickled mouth witches prowl the sky,
    making enchantments with toads eyes,
    their blackened humour reaches my femur
    Possessing my muscles like disembodied lever

    Rather much like you poem Mr Midnight, I've always enjoyed a good witch my aunt is one, among other things in that department. Great read (Report) Reply
