Soul light

August 26, 2019

Dark as it is – you see,
that little flickering,
is the light of my soul.

Dark things

We love certain dark things
In silence
Between the shadows and our souls –

The Dark

Wandering in the dark alone, feels strangely reassuring to me.

better after dark

Honest. You’ll have to trust me. After midnight I’m so cute – so sweet, too! Sweet as the taste of a virgin’s blood, which always tastes so much better after dark.

Bad is strong

The Bad thrives on the dark and the cold; it is a winter force. So be careful when the sun is weak, and the air bites you. Stay off the moor, where the Bad is strong. If the Bad catches you there, run to the Standing Stones. Even in the winter the Stones hum with a thousand ancient blessings. If you are closer to Foxlowe, run so you are inside the Scattering Salt.

lost boundaries

March 20, 2018

When I looked up through the web of trees, the night fell over me, and for a moment I lost my boundaries, feeling like the sky was my own skin and the moon was my heart beating up there in the dark.

take down your panties

March 11, 2018

It is dark, very dark, and your legs are so long – impossibly long, it seems – because it takes me forever to take down your panties and to pull them over your feet.
