A Touch of Witchcraft

Breathless. Phantom pulse. Her heart embracing illusions, a craving powering her thoughts. How could it be? A spell cast upon her, the caster knowing not what they’d done Witchcraft, to it she must resort, a potion for love, for her … Continue reading

Pluvial Night

Runaway, pluvial night. Cold in her bones. Unwanted. Undone. Uncertain life was worth another breath. Hurting to her soul. PTSD in the making. Each step, each raindrop, another reason to kneel in surrender. Awakening inner voice. Unforeseen inner strength. Walking … Continue reading
