Love Me For Witch I Am

Child of the opposition, ever exercising free will

Let us churn together in the tides.

While fools attempt at nature’s task:

Refuse to humble yourself.

Bound me not by the mettle of monogamy,

Whose too-short tethers fight the ocean.

Show yourself wise of temporality,

Swear by the moon, the inconsistent moon:

We will burn with the wax, and

May we long with the wane.

Trust that I will return

Paler, fuller than remembered,

To stay through the night.

But if you crave daily assurance,

Tie your heart to something fearful,

and leave me be: you will not

Love me for witch I am.
