Pagan Poetry – Freeing the Witch


Freeing the Witch

There’s something safer in the dreams
Where reality is not what it seems
Where the walls break and fly
and the madness isn’t shy
The part of me that remembers how to speak
In a heart murmur which is not weak
And the chains on me fall soundless to the ground
And I howl
The makeup smears across our faces
We resign all our given places
Why did you tell me who to be
As though you feared if I was free
And the words lay heavy on my heart
from the start
Its not as though I want the lock
Caged bird free is quite a shock
Just belonging for this lifetime might be fun
Be the one
And so I run
Into the wind
