i’d sewed It together and begged It to stay

October 30, 2020

FREE WRITING

22

I stitched It together in the papyrus of a grimoire; dribbled love upon
Its mangled lips in
sage-and-wax candle tips.
Her waning crescent spoke to me, a seer in the crimson sea, the final nail in the
coffin is this: you will never be what you once were,
not by tears of the stars,
nor bones of the earth,
not so long as It rots on the windowsill, and
you elude evening seances in the cobweb hills, and
forgot that you dreamed of
a home of your own to build.

How do I convince It to stay?
How do I save the very Thing that kept my worst self at bay?
If It asked for my firstborn, a sigil carved in the walls of my womb,
I dare not let these nightmares be freed:
Do I utter to It that all the children that I have left
are held in the mirror, as It itself sees?

What is the use in searching for a Thing that has long since stopped believing in me?
Not all the skeletons moths in the world could restore this bitter milkweed.
but I just ! Wanted to Create ! Wanted to
prove to It that I could Make
something
worth
dreaming
for.

But nowadays,
even the act of staying awake
feels like such a chore.

I suppose I wanted to make something that would Outlive me.
But stuck in the dregs of a cauldron, I never got the opportunity, not
by tears of the stars,
nor bones of the earth.
I know It had gone long ago,
and left me to rot in the dirt.
i can’t remember the last time i’ve written a piece i was proud of. “It” is supposed to represent the skill i thought maybe i once had. yeah. also. bad vibes all around. but anyways hey spooky aesthetics for october! (:) i personally think i give off slight witch-y vibes but vampires do be kinda cute tbh

    This is incredible, oh my gosh. I literally love every single line, and the images and descriptions are so beautiful.
    "Its mangled lips in/sage-and-wax candle tips."
    "you elude evening seances in the cobweb hills, and/forgot that you dreamed of/a home of your own to build."
    You SHOULD be proud of this piece, it's amazing!
    I also really relate to the feeling that talent is slipping away, but I'm telling you, it's in your head. Self-critique to an extent will always help you get better, but honestly, you're an amazing writer and I don't think I've ever read a piece of yours that I didn't absolutely love.

    i second EVERYTHING waxingcrescents said--there is literally nothing you could do to lose your talent. seriously. you'd have talent if you wrote a SINGLE WORD. This poem is chilling--in the best of ways ;) i love love love the way you give me the creeps from the very first line. Perfect for the season! :) so good to hear from you again <3 take care of yourself, dear

    Yes, you do give off witchy vibes! (In a good way). Shush! There is no way you could lose any of your talents; you have more talent in your little typing finger than most people on this website have in their whole bodies. And I seriously believe that with my whole heart. This poem is only proof of it. I love and have always loved your work, dear. Like: "Not all the skeletons moths in the world could restore this bitter milkweed." Trust me, you are one of the most talented people I know. I hope this passes soon. You can always talk to me. <3
