The Shadow
The demons of the past
Haunt like the future.
A memory, fading, echoing
So sadly and so angrily
Reminds me of my eyes
And the depths they have gone
To see the end and the fiery
Hell of the beginning.
There are no voices
No one telling me what to do
But myself
And that is why I am crazy.
Because I can fly with the carrion bellies
And drown with the songs of the drowners.
I am asleep
And you are all awake
And that is why you are crazy.

I never thought the day would come
when thunder struck me down.
The raven cackled as he circled above
unaffected, brutally blissful.
He was waiting for the opportune moment to pluck out my eyes,
and shred my skin beneath his beak.
He wasn’t waiting for me to succumb to the state of a corpse;
He wanted to eat me alive.
My eyes were trained to the skies
as his oily black feathers rustled with the wind.
A storm was coming-
Dark, static and deep.
The thunder was animate and strong.
My brittle spine felt the monster in the cloud
as it cracked against the grassy field.
Looking up, I could see the darkness
and the red eyes that burned in the storm.
My epiphany was cruel,
the realization of my brutality stung like a whip.
I understood then, as the raven flew, that I was paying
and would continue to pay for my absence of wings.
To reach the sky, I would require flight.
Without it, I would burn.
I would crack and break, just like lightening in the storm.
I felt my blood freeze in my veins,

I once was the moorland and the raven that flew.
I glided through the hill-bound mists,
I knew the secrets of why the roots dug deep.
The Young Sun bowed to the Moon when I was but a child,
His antlers covered in velvet, eager to seek the doe.
Under their watch, I was the Earth,
And I knew the language of the Wisps.
Follow their path and you will find the wolves,
With their yellow eyes and mournful howls waiting for you.
They will lead you to Her.
I know the truth behind the bark,
I know the Fae who dance round the roots.
Listen to their songs across the veil and you will know to smile.
My horse was my soul,
I was the power behind his hooves,
And the froth that steamed from his mouth.
I was the arrow, held tight by Her bow,
And the strong that held so much promise.
My dress was painted by the sunset on the cliffs.
My boots were made from the night.
The ancient pines are old friends of mine,
And their stories were my lullabies.
All was my Mother, all was my Father,
And my children, you

Journal History



SunlitMercy's Profile Picture
Artist | Student | Traditional Art
United States
A little about myself: I'm Wiccan and I love animals, particularly wolves, owls and cows. I live out in the country and love the rolling hills of my state. :) I paint, sketch, photograph and could stare at the moon for countless hours. My favorite medium to work in is Colored Pencil. I'm currently starting a Colored Penciled Fairy Series and will soon be creating Fairy Holiday Cards concerning the four seasons so they don't appeal to just one particular group of people:)

Frequent haunts of mine are the bookstore, the movie theater, a Thai restaurant called Jasmine, Starbucks (although the coffee in France is ten times better) and the Good Cup. Speaking of, the architecture in Paris is phenomenal.

Anything supernatural or magical will somehow always find a way into my lap through a book, movie, or even experiences. I'm pondering getting a degree in the occult.... could be an interesting study.

My top favorite movies are The Lost Boys, The Avengers, Thor, Signs, The Craft, Nightmare Before Christmas, Fight Club, The Breakfast Club, Nightmare on Elm Street, and V for Vendetta.

I like the color black.

And I love accents, particularly those concerning Irishmen.
