Pagan Poetry – Survival of a Crow Hearted Girl

crowback

Survival of a Crow Hearted Girl

Clawing at my back
down to the bone
to try and find my soot stained wings

Blood in the welts
Of where they lashed
Badges of honour from a battle long fought

Tearing my skin
To draw out my chain
Remembering that I could fly once

Screams in the night
Memories resurrect
Hearing the call to run until I ache

Until my feet crack
Until my knees fail
Until the ground swallows me whole
