Sarah: My Other Half

By Rae Lynn

 

(This is based on Barbara Louise Ungar’s poem on having a conversation with a voodoo doll [could not find the title of the poem]. Let’s see if my voodoo doll can fulfill my desire…)

 

 

Why do you open yourself, you fool?

 

I gave my heart away to a siren

She dropped it into the cold abyss

And it sank into infinite obscurity

 

There’s a simple reason

She wants your heart as cold and dark

As her own

 

She has no heart

Eyes deep and haunting as night

Fingers long and sharp as talons

Voice that shames Canens

 

She can see into your soul

She can tear you into shreds
But she must have a weakness

 

Tell me how to make her suffer

Can you close her mouth?

That black hole of misery?

 

Use a needle and thread

Sew my mouth shut

 

If I accomplish this

Will I be free

From the witch’s clutches?

 

I cannot promise you

That you will be free

But she will make a peep no longer

 

She may not make a sound

But what about her claws?

Her two black voids?

 

Use a knife and cut off my hands

And with the same tool

Gouge out my button eyes

 

If I accomplish this

Will I be free?

 

I cannot promise you

That you will be set free

For a siren never rests in peace
