I believe I was a ginger headed poet in a past life,
who wrote love through magik spells—
burning candle wax, whispering incantations
under a full moon and painting pale,
naked flesh with dirt and ash.
Dancing with ghostly ravens through flames,
to the thumpthumpthump of my storm heart,
as it became one with the earth.
I roared my passions and my glory
to the heavens above, laughing
like a crazy eyed crone for the sake
of those who feared me.
My witches tongue, hissing, 'Come hither!'
as heat licked my shoulders like an old lover,
come home.

perhaps cut "I believe" & in the 3rd line "burned' and "whispered" as forms. comma after "full moon"and cut the "and" that follows. cut "as it became one with the earth". whole lotta tellin' going on.

Sorry, that sounded rude. But, thank you for the suggestions, anyway. I know it could use some improvment.
