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.

Nice use of onomatopoeia and I like how you drew on the images of poetry and magic, or magik as you so wonderfully spelt it :D

Wow, amazing poem. Great imagery and use of language. I think this poem would make a great sonnet if you edited it a bit. It just seems the type, I guess.

Hmm, interesting. I've never written a sonnet before. I'll look into it for sure. :)

I have never either but I am actually working on my first one now. I think I was reminded of sonnets when reading your poem because I associate sonnets with Shakespeare and Shakespeare wrote Macbeth which involves witches. :D

I haven't read those. I've only read Macbeth and Romeo and Juliet because I had to for school. I wouldn't be his biggest fan, the language got a bit tedious at times but I liked the plots. :D I hope you do.

I honestly agree.
The Taming of the Shrew was however, turned into a modernized play called 'Kiss Me Kate'. :D
I believe it is why I love that one so much.
