There's magma boiling in her frostbitten veins;
incandescent pixie dust and
sluggishly making its way through
a childish heart — wishing for one last chance
to spread her wings and soar to
The term 'witch oil' comes from His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman. It's a phrase the Gyptians use to describe Lyra. If you've read them, you may understand why I used it. And then you'll understand this. If you haven't read them, well...here's a little hint: adolescence and adulthood fight against one another most of the series. In this poem...I'll just say the same sort of thing is happening.
Random burst of poetry is random.

Oh my god. Your poetry is so amazing and it's a big deal when I say that because I never go and actively read poetry, but this is so gorgeous. Hnnng. It makes ME want to write poetry, but I know I won't actually do it because I could never write something like this. STOP BEING TALENTED.
hmm your explanation about his dark materials made me understand the poem ( I liked the series a lot). The flow of the poem is very good as well. you write very well. Good message, good writing. I can see why someone gave you the DD
This captures so many emotions! A well deserved DD
That's such a lovely poem. You used wonderful descriptive words and it is a joy to read.
So beautiful^^ The DD was well deserved!
Short, sharp, beautiful. And 'soot-stained stars' is a bloody brilliant image.
Congratulations on the DD, dear heart! <3 <3 <3
I totally love this.
CONGRATS ON THE DD, I KNEW YOU'D GET ONE SOMEDAY
Congrads on the DD
Glorious use of contrast.
Beautiful work! Congrats on the DD!
Beautiful, albeit random.
Congrats on the DD
Thank you so much for suggesting it. I honestly never would have expected a DD, especially on this. I owe it all to you. I can't even begin to describe my gratitude.
I do want to ask, though - why are you so uncomfortable with the atheism Pullman brings into His Dark Materials?
I'm not at all. I'm very open to it. I'm open to all religious beliefs, as long as they're not being shoved down my throat.
This is lovely ^^ Congrats on the DD.
Love. Love is the only thing I can feel for this poem. WHY HAVE YOU NOT BEEN IN MY LIFE UNTIL THIS MOMENT?
i truly love this and i love the book and this poem describes lyra perfectly good job
