The Witch in the Wildforest
She knew how it would turn out,
That she would have to be the villain,
Because she was supposed to know better,
But the season has been caught and tangled
Between summer and autumn
And in such a time, the rules hold no power.
Boundaries break from the weight
Of suspended transition, all caution
Gets whirled with the wind.
So she smiled, and held out a hand.
He looked hungry.
But she had been starving.
