A poem I wrote, dedicated to main characters on my fae stories – Raven Aen and Daman Allaid 🙂
you are drowning in autumnal colors
swallowing the light of a faint young sun
your hair drink the gossamer bliss
you were my captive, my woven wonder
you tucked my heart in the cradle made with invisible threads
created air that with both breathe with
I am drowning in fallen leaves
wooden fingers, metal beaks, copper spiders
buttons on the tree bark –
those which fulfill tangled wishes
The rusted season swallows us both
let me summon the roses
let me summon the thorns
a spell that lasts until blinding white licks our skin
Welcome, mortal creature
We are made of starlight and green limbs of the earth. We are deceiving eyes, waiting for their prey, while vast overgrowth whispers our names, chants our titles.
Trees lick the blood and suck the darkness from our veins.
Welcome to the unseelie court.
