12 Days of Halloween Witches


There are witches in the hills
Calling my name
Sayin’, “Come, join us sister
Come, kiss the flame
Come, dance in the moonbeams
Ride the night winds
Make love to the darkness
And laugh at man’s sins”

I shiver with delight
I shiver with fear
My heart wants to go
But my soul’s filled with fear
So I turn to my lover
And ask, “What do I do?
Do I answer their call or
Stay here with you?”

But under spell of deep sleep
He moans and turns away
Takin’ his protection
And my desire to stay
So I rise to the hills
I ride the night winds
I make love to the darkness
And I laugh at man’s sins

Cowboy Junkies

By JunkChuck

Native, Militant Westsylvanian (the first last best place), laborer, gardener, and literary hobbyist (if by literary you mean "hack"). I've had a bunch of different blogs, probably four, due to a recurring compulsion to start over. This incarnation owes to a desire to dredge up the best entries of the worst little book of hand-scrawled poems I could ever dream of writing, salvageable excerpts from fiction both in progress and long-abandoned. and a smattering of whatever the hell seems to fit at any particular moment. At first blush, I was here just to focus on old, terrible verse, but I reserve the right to include...anything. Maybe everything, certainly my love of pulp novels, growing garlic, the Pittsburgh Steelers and howling at the moon--both figuratively and, on rare occasions, literally.
