A Self-Proclaimed Witch

A Self Proclaimed Witch


Her eyes would twitch,

she was a self proclaimed witch,

fear and desperation,

it was what she was facing,

her pulse was racing,

and she could feel her blood

pounding in her temples,

she was starting to perspire,

her soul was hot,

and her mind was on fire,

she would hear a groan,

and death came in with a low moan,

she tried to look away,

but he took the point of her chin

in his hand and brought her eye to eye,

her emotions were thin,

and she did everything, but cry,

she pulled at her dress,

her hair was a mess,

soaked through with sweat,

and it was sticking to her forehead,

moments later, her life had ended,

violently, and she was completely dead.
