A True Wietch Affects the physical , and beyond the physical ,
and knows the lies perpetrated by those who want to control
the reality commonly perpetrated among the population...

a damned soul... set free


 
 
 
a mannequin dressed as a priest
the bride stands in there, hands tied  
my hands tied too, to the old bench
and a dirty old rag covered my mouth
 
the old church is filled with old dolls
dressed up in pretty dresses and suits
a gramophone plays the bridal chorus
he hummed while swaying to the rhythm
 
I could see its body dark as the coal
skin covered in flies and red maggots
I felt something dripped on my shoulder
I looked up to find the bodies of our families
 
what to expect when all the hope is gone?
what am I scared of, to die or to see her killed?
 
...but why today?

Competitions are for fun. Ok, they can be ''serious'' fun as you can see by  the pieces alread submitted.  Nobody is writing a thesis on the subject here.   With respect:  take a deep breath.

Robert, if you select "Quote" vs "Reply" under each submission, the entrant you're replying to would know it was meant for them. 🙏💙

Angel Eyes (A Witche's Tale)

and so  
the man came and told      
the frightened woman      
of her husband's demise      
that soldier      
a true man of honor      
who called her angel eyes      
      
then when he left      
she grabbed a      
white cloth      
dampened it      
a little      
wiped her eyes with it      
and cried out      
to no one      
       
she grabbed up      
the string of beads    
where they lay in  
the wooden box      
she kept it in           
along with her mittens  
and fled the cottage      
running deep into        
the thick forrest while    
choking on her tears      
       
Closing her eyes      
she tried      
to find some words      
to say a prayer      
but instead      
she cursed God      
for he had taken      
the one thing      
from her        
she truly loved      
       
It's because      
I am a witch      
you have taken      
the one person      
I can not live without      
it must be my      
punishment      
why else would you      
take my man      
from me      
when I carry      
his child inside me      
       
she saw the black bear      
from the corner      
of one eye      
and knew it was approaching      
then she cursed        
her maker one last time      
as she felt a claw      
brush her back      
she bit a clenched fist      
as the black bear      
took her down

I just noticed your entry in the competition.   I like.   However:  you are still above the 30 lines limit so, yes, good write,  but not for the competition.   Regards, Robert   ( I am still in the hospital so I think sometimes my brain goes wooooozy

Puritains of greed

They looked behind the closet  
quoted texts from the good book
where was the evidence to indict those so dishonest ?
innocence never to escape a baited hook
 
Did they fly on broomsticks high
sack and cloth of scriptures vent
paranoia is the stream that undermines
the curse, that saw justice's so blind intent  
 
The power to bend and distort
make the pact in the vein and pulse
not honest but deception, the laws escort
the devils work; did just result
 
To advocate, a brew of civic hate
not straight and narrow, a path astray
that there may be another doctorate  
one that would nor choke and subjugate
 
In the caldron of the courts behest
eye to eye and heard the charges read
the devils pact, all evil deed's attest
all guilty; let no one be misled
 
The crowd outside, baying out for blood
agitators shouting, time to stretch their necks
show no mercy spoil the child and spare the rod
the gallows with its tall derrick
 
In Salem's square they lead them out  
the noose its bounty, no spell could break
hanging like black carrion, for all those that doubt
assumption, and not questions; to kill for killing sake
