Witch

Poetry by Sarah Bracken

Witch

Come now, listen to my story
Hear my tale
Don’t forget your handkerchief
For my story is a sad tale

Repent! Repent!
Repent your sins

I fell in love with a prince
In a distant land
We were in love
We were happy
I wish I could have stopped time

Repent! Repent!
Repent your sins

A nobleman’s daughter
Loved the prince as well
Her jealousy was strong
And she accused me of the worse crime

Repent! Repent!
Repent your sins

She said I was a witch
Everyone believed her
For ignorance had a strong hold
And I was different

Repent! Repent!
Repent your sins

They tied me to a cross
As I looked up at the sky
The fire burns bright
If my love was a spell
I can only cry

Repent! Repent!
Repent your sins

Take these tears and this story
And spread it far and wide
Let people know the
Weight of death and lies
