You may call me a
witch or a wench.
But the truth remains:
in my rejection
you are bound to find
a blessing greater
than reciprocation.

A/n: As you all know it is “Poe Inspires Poetry” week on, today’s poem is inspired by the following verses of Edgar Allan Poe’s poem, “Dreamland”
I hope you enjoyed. 🙂

“Never its mysteries are exposed
To the weak human eye unclosed;”

    And if you have some romantic notion that love is a circle
    that must be completed and returned between two cosmic lovers
    If not in this lifetime, then the next
    Then follow that notion to the bitter end if you must…
    Life According to Dormis… 🙂

      Alas, in this case the notion stands to be exactly opposite. :/
      Thank you for your amazing comment, Dormis. I am assuming that is your name. If not then apologies. 🙂

        just a tag I use on WP (nom de plume), so yes that’s my name here. Yes, exact opposite and that’s why people are so different and unique.. 🙂

          Well, in that case nice to meet you Dormis. 🙂
          Indeed that is very true! 🙂
