"She believed the world had begun last Tuesday. January the twelfth, to be precise. When I asked her how she came up with the idea, she just shrugged, before looking at me as though it were obvious." – Charlotte Amelia Poe.

thirteen steps past the funeral pyre

in salem’s graveyards
there walk the ghosts
of those you tried to burn
as bones became charred
and tears streaked soot
now
if you breathe in
feel the catch of your heart
the flush of your cheeks
as the air feels a little warmer
for a hundred years and a hundred more
and all the centuries that followed
and will follow
they count your steps
and mark your path
and i hope to your gods you don’t cross them
with word or thought or deed
because magic is magic whether it is old or new
and even long since dead
the witches’ screams
will swallow you

Communication

I hate that I have to write this post, but I need to make something very clear. I really, really struggle with correspondence, thank you, anxiety disorder, and therefore my email address is only on the contact page for enquiries in regards to publishing and collaboration, I am not looking for friends. I appreciate the sentiment, but I cannot mentally handle the stress of it. So please, unless you have a professional enquiry, don’t email me. Thank you.
