The Magical Witch

                                                        (Image Source: http://fleshy.org.nz)


Subtle glance,
Wavy trance,
Creates a spell,
Heaven or Hell,
Can't distinguish,
What's her wish,
Beyond my reach,
The Magical Witch.

Eyes wide open,
Hopes dampen,
Smiles and flirts,
You will be hurt,
Plays with your heart,
Arrows and darts,
Beyond my reach,
The Magical Witch.

Waves her wand,
Turns gold from sand,
Mesmerizing eyes,
Full of lies,
Trust broken,
Dreams frozen,
Still beyond my reach,
She's The Magical Witch.


This Poem is written for Poetry Jam and the Prompt is "Do You Believe In Magic?".

  4. Oh wow! It is such an amusing composition. I loved the image you used. Your words were magical, complimenting the theme. The poet seems to have been enchanted by this witch. ;)

  5. This reads like a tune. In trance, she is able to do all of these things and still leaves you yearning. I don't think that this one will ever be in reach, a devilish little witch. Nice rhyme! Thank you for your lovely comment on my blog. :)

    1. Yes she seems to be completely out of reach, yet always appearing so near :-P

  6. She's a teaser. And anyone is better off without her using them as bait to her tormenting. But, she knows how to pull people in eh! Clever girl. Some witches are just so good at being bad ;)
    Nice imagery all through this.

  10. She must be seen differently. This is a translation of mine of a Norwegian poem:

    FILLING AND FULFILLING

    Translated from Olav Aukrust: ”Fylgje og fylgja”

    Singing about life I sing about you.
    To me, my love, you reveal the life true –
    mirroring him, he the only there is,
    by you I talk about her being this.

    Thinking of you I am thinking of it
    which keeps me burning, sees to I am lit –
    thinking of her who in challenging ways
    urges me to conquer the world and the days.

    And if I love her I really love you.
    To me the same is this being of two.
    By the existence of you I believe
    she by the fashioned cut figure will live.

    When I did find her, I really found you.
    When I did win her, I also won you.
    Mystery under the rose do reveal it.
    He who knows secrets admire and feel it.

    Thus I do testify, love, that when I
    lower a love song my inner life by,
    meant for the only one, right from my heart,
    you and her both I address by my art.
