    The Fire

      I stared into the flames, entranced by their blue and orange hews and wondered what it would be like to be consumed by these dancing devils. I knew the coals beneath their feet were keeping them alive as they writhed and flickered mockingly, knowing that I couldn’t...

    A Poem For All To See

    I know some people wont enjoy this, i know some people wont like my taste in words, but i figured I would give it a shot. Remember i am young. The rest of the universe is unspoken for the lot of us. Is it better this way? Living among the stars. Seeing how life, whether you...

    I Would Love To Write, But Who Would Pay For It.

    But Who Would Read It?

    I love writing about witchcraft, but who would read my book? I mean, I'm sure there are a few people who would check it out but in all honesty.... I won't be saying much that hasn't already been said. Maybe some outlooks or personal opinions, maybe a couple of new techniques (or...
