She brought him the usual gifts at first. A mouse, a bird. A ribbon for him to play with.

She would run up with her gift in her mouth and prrt cheerfully around it. And he would pat her head and tell her she was a good and clever cat.

Then it was a coin with strange markings. A pendant, warm to the touch. A piece of lightning-struck wood.

He never knew of the shadowy figures that followed him, but neither did he have to fear them.

She was a good and clever cat.

She saw on TV that ghosts made things cold, and she'd always had chilly feet at night.

So she found a stone with a hole through the middle and she waited under the covers until the chill made her toes curl.

Gently, she sat up, closing one eye and holding the stone up to the other.

Shimmering and thin as a beam of moonlight, the cat stretched and resettled on her feet.

She smiled and went back to bed, careful not to kick.

She'd always wanted a cat.

'Don't!' She reached out to stop her, but woman only smiled.

'It's alright. Truly.' She crouched beside the thing of tentacles and claws that crawled from the lake. She rubbed its bald, water-slicked dome; it gurgled and chirped.

'See? Just because you don't understand something, doesn't mean it isn't good.' She tickled its tentacles; it squirted water.

'I suppose not,' the other replied, staring at the woman as if she, too, were a strange and unusual thing.

Good morning :tootplanet: and tootfriends!

Here's a cute raft sailing it's way down the river and small water falls in the woods. The video has no sound.

Ugh, I keep slipping into first person while Blackwing Witch. This is what I get for having multiple projects on the go.

😫 Spoke too soon. I'll rearrange my schedule for today as it looks like it'll lighten up a bit later.

Trying to decide whether it is too rainy to record. I think it's not too bad right now? Will test a bit and see. πŸŽ™οΈ πŸ“š

Today I wish you understanding and emotional support. ✨

I was puzzled by the pirate captain who had come into my tavern.

Colorful, loud, exuberant. Friendly, even. And perched upon her shoulder was neither a customary dapper monkey nor a vibrant parrot, but a huge raven with bright purple eyes.

After many ales, she leaned to me and confessed, "I love my job even if I'm just a distraction."

The raven puffed her feathers in annoyance, "Polly, that's a secret."

"Sorry Captain," Polly apologized.

To outsiders, if they stayed long enough, there was an oddness to the tides in my village.

The ocean would recede for months, then trickle back over the course of a week until it was lapping at our doorsteps, and would remain so for months, before receding again.

This was perfectly normal to me, of course, I had grown up with it.

I loved opening the door to the sea, to let my mother and sisters home.

Soon it'd be my turn to go with them.

Wilderness sprawled out before me, all the way to the wooden privacy fence.

I eyed it lazily from behind the safety of a double-glazed glass window.

Outside there were birds & squirrels; I imagined supplementing my diet with fresh, frightened flesh.

Then I shook myself, disgusted.

No, it was just too MESSY.

Humans hardly ever needed to hunt or poop in the dirt anymore, why should I?

Inside was where the food with fish meat was anyway.

I want to take the time
to be angry.
To take on the days
where I don’t carry guilt and shame
like twins that suck me dry.
And take myself seriously
when I finally feel
angry
for the way I was led to believe
I wasn’t allowed to speak up
when well meaning people
told me to carry things I didn’t want.

#Poetry #corvusrobotica

If forgiveness is something
you do for yourself
rage is stating:
I refuse to
not recognise
I deserved better.
Haven’t I consoled myself enough,
haven’t I given up
and given in
and given and given and given
enough?

>

Forgiveness is like
your mother’s aunt’s cousin
telling you
’children are a gift.’
And you’ve spent years looking up
getting your tubes tied.
It’s uncomfortable
telling this person
to their well-meaning face
to fuck off.

Tenuously tied together people
by blood
connection
association
have no say on what I
get to carry
and nurture.
The things I hold
to my chest,
that keeps me up at night.
That I raise
and fight for,
and love.

I am 3 usd away from my first stretch goal on my patreon. πŸ‘€
