Age Group: Adult
The yellow flames jump for the sky
feeding contentedly on what once lived.
A symbol of life that is life-consuming.
As the flames get closer,
tonguing hungrily at my flesh,
I begin to wonder,
trying to understand,
These flames tht were once thought of as cleansing,
These searing tongues of Golden light that gave warmth,
The same that are now devouring the flesh from my bones.
What have I done?
I loved these people,
I did nothing to harm them.
They who hate me for what I am.
I am dying - burning.
Yet the heat and pain do not bother me.
I am alive,
and will be for long after I die.
I am a Witch
and my magic will survive.
Author's Notes: This is my first submission to Withcvox.
It came from my hand in 1982, while I was in the Air Force. I had grown up very Catholic, and knew nothing of witchcraft. What moved my pen, I don't know.
I hope that people enjoy it.
