Pagan Poetry – When Badb came


Image – Nemesis by Hollllow

And when Badb came for me
I knew it was not yet my time
But I had screamed for death
And She had heard me
And with an otherworldy scythe
Cleaved me in two
And demanded I remember who I was
“Sew it up,” She told me
“And with every inch of that pain
Scream your utmost…”
Badb had given me a voice
And I remembered how much I was alive
Even when it tore me to pieces.
