The Witch's Admirers by *lantern-rose
Excellent rhythm and diction, and an
unconventional rhyme scheme and
structure really bring this piece to life.

Other Girlsit's not a simple thing
reading old magazines
like other girls
with other girls
in the same room
with the same shame
but they're not you
and they weren't there
but they know
Waiting rooms that get stuck in your joints
how different names seem spelt now
closer to a gamble than a title
now, you're gonna have to spell

It had, of course, seen moonlight. The very silken beams themselves filtered through haphazard drapes, which tattered fabrics hung so askew that it could only be the drapes of an abandoned castle. The moonbeams did not draw in dust moats like it's brother, but stilled the very air it graced, instead. And froze it half to death-bringing, he thought.
