Second Poem Published

Today, it’s my honor to annunciate that I’ve had poetry published on MasticadoresUSA. I’m grateful to site Editor Gabriela Marie Miltonthank you very much, Gabriela – for selecting my poem, which is entitled, She’s a Good Witch. Please do visit the site. Thanks!

She’s a good witch
The spells are real
Her magic worked on me

Within a wish
She’d wink an eye
And thoughts would come to be

With no defense
I’m at her whim
And yes, she likes to play

She wears me out
Then props me up
Each evening every day

Don’t get me wrong
I love her so
And know she loves me too

But she’s in charge
This lovely witch
Until the day is through

She’s a good witch
Her spells are real
The magic works for me.

  1. Congratulations my friend! 🙌🏼 I love this poem…it’s so BEWITCHING!!! Talk about casting a phenomenal spell on you Phil. I enjoyed reading about your “good” witch! 🧚🏼‍♀️ 🎃 👻 For some reason, your poem reminds me of “Invisible Touch” by Genesis. 🎵 🥁 🎶

      • You are most welcome. Thank you for sharing your witchy lines with us – lines that remind me we have entered the spooky season.👻 Your poem is more sweet than spooky. 😁

        • Ah, well not as sweet as you, my beautiful friend. Thank you. 😘 Hopefully this season will see more treats than tricks, greater festivities than last year. 🎃👻👽

          • Ha! I sure have you fooled! 😆 🙏🏼 Yes, hopefully. Like most people, I wasn’t into Halloween at all last year. I am feeling a bit inspired to read some Poe, write something spooky, and wear a costume.

          • Haha I know sweet when I see it. 😆 Yes, I enjoyed your post from last season, albeit an understandably slow holiday. Looking forward to reading more of your creative writings, Michele. ✍🏼😊

    • Hey – what a nice surprise to see you here, Dad! 👍 Thanks so much for stopping by. I appreciate your feedback and I’m glad you enjoyed the poem, too. See you soon!
