Julia Smith on Making profit off of poetry
2 hours ago
she would swear curses
at adversaries she hated,
enemies got bad scrams,
their prospects down-rated
I'd smile, it seemed a joke,
her mother's just the same,
some daft witches' game
yet was it really so silly,or
was there something to it?
some victims took poorly,
there was never a minute
free of tragic local news,

she used to set me on fire
her eyes lit my every day
that touch a breath of silk
voice so alluring and fey
magic slipped into reverse
our love shrinks unspoken
chemistry fell out of kilter
her fairy wand has broken
careless now, her moods
weaving so casual gashes,
disdain on that elfin face,
a tongue with fifty lashes
bored and up to mischief

White Witch Of Winter
Corvus the white witch
Once flew the sky on crow’s wings
And fed on battlefield dead
She ate the hearts of serfs and kings
But soon she lost the taste for flesh
And transformed into what winter brings
Her skin is cold to human touch
She feasts on other-worldly things
She turns snowflakes into blizzards
Freezes your blood and tears

The Pumpkin Queen
The pumpkin queen is orange
Like the colour of her fruits
She wears a giant apron
And polished hob-nailed boots

And helps others when it suits
The pumpkin queen is deeper than
An oak tree’s ancient roots
She sits in regal glory
On a throne of wood and leaves
And will animate her chosen one
As long as i...

All Hallows Eve
Gnarled tree roots claw from the ground
scratching over disturbed graves.
Pumpkins grin their toothless snarl,
fleshy tongues of seed and fibre.
The spectral drift of chilling mist
that prods and pokes at exposed flesh.
Somewhere a creature of the night
mewls in whimpering ecstasy
Dank leaves of autumn line the paths
as little ...

This genie spell hex you put on me will kill me.
I want to die.
I'm sick of the anxiety and shit you cause me, in my head all the time.
Why did you magically bind me to you?
We belong together? Horse shit!
You belong in the bottom block.
You're nuts and drive me insane.
I must end my life and get away from you. Permanently.
I borrowed my mate's pistol. He...

There was one who taught me all, as she taught the witch
at the other side of the estate. We are meant to be the best,
no one touching us on our path.
Me and you, together we had it all,
I met you in the Crystal Chamber. You became my wife,
me the goth, you the witch, fairy tale story.
I became your student and learned all I could,
we toured Euro...
