Mayhap

Mayhap you will meet me along the twisty path, more likely when the light is fading. Twilight time, that moment between day and night. The veil between worlds is weaker then.

Mayhap you will not recognize me for who I really am. Black of hair, pale of face. Standing tall but looking down. My cloak of darkest navy is wrapped around me tightly but even so it will not seem so out of place. A part of me, as much as my arms, my legs.

Mayhap you will feel something strange, otherworldly; catch sight of a shimmer, a movement too slight to really register. T’would not make sense so you would not ‘see’.

Mayhap your eyes will meet with mine and you will be struck by a feeling of dread. Golden eyed, not of human kind but of corvidae; you are looking into the eyes of a raven staring out from a woman’s face.

Mayhap you will see me fall apart, into black beating wings that take to the sky in a thunder of beating wings and a flurry of feathers. Will you recognise me for who I am, the Morrigan and her murder of crows.

Mayhap you will be left wondering if I was every there at all, or was merely a figment of your imagination.
