Autumn Fairy

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
