Love Avoidant


In the nighttime of my soul,

my eyes burn like blue flames,

in a never ending recitation

of cupid’s sweet  call.

I am withering into cobwebs,

arms of twigs a trunk too large,

without sustenance

I crave all the things so divine

that collapse the strings that

hold me together,

and I am afraid,

so very afraid,

of each word I say

as it leaves my fingertips

in insecure regret.

Don’t give up on me,

Though I have given up

on myself,

Don’t love me so much,

I cannot fathom or bare,

I feel naked in your eyes,

ashamed and torn,

for I am damaged,

and I’m not sure

love could save me at all.


About Siofra |Nathifa|

A Druid and a Kemetic Pagan. I have studied Celtic Traditions, European Shamanism, the Fairy Faith, Native American Traditions, Wicca, Witchcraft and have explored New Age beliefs. I guess you could say I'm eclectic, but right now my focus is on Druidry and Kemetic Traditions. I am by no means, an expert in any of these interests. I am also a Bard in training.
