Witchy Woman



~~~

Wicked woven in midnight trance

A magic called by Shaman’s dance

Like the grip of the jungle vine

It traps and holds this heart of mine

~~~

 

Cauldron bubbles its evil brew

Firelight adds a witching hue

Incantations in whispered tone

Ensure that I am yours alone

~~~

 

In chicken bones the future read

By island princess of the dead

The pull of your ancient voodoo

A quicksand for my love of you

~~~

 

There in the autumn’s faint moonlight

She prances naked with delight

And the chant of her Druid art

Easily captures lustful heart

~~~

 

I am bound by your sorcery

You, now, the only love I see

I only hope the spells you cast

Will make the magic truly last

~~~

    it’s all about the magic, isn’t it?

  2. Some very accurate. No chicken bones but I love the imagery 🥰

    Love, love, love this!!!!! 😍😍😍

  4. Loved the poetry, as the witches mesmerize by their spells, I am mesmerized by this poem. All the elements of witchcraft are captured in an elegant way at the same time the poetry has a mystical flow. This will remain as one of my favourites.

  5. Great poem, very rhythmic and full of great images, especially the chicken bones 🙂

  9. Love how this is both dangerous and tantalizing. Great poem, Brad.

    I just had one of those Twilight Zone moments. About two minutes after I finished listening to Witchy Woman by The Eagles, I came to your post. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mk89f7Sz5mg
