The One

His eyes say good, but his soul says evil.

He looks at you and you know that he needs you.

You wish you had him in your arms.

And that nothing could separate the two of you.

“You love him,” your heart says,

“Leave him,” your brain says.

You don’t know what to do.

So, you wait for your instincts to kick in.

They never do.

“You’re on your own for this one. He’s the one,” they say.

That glimpse just ended.

All that happened in 2.5 seconds and you don’t want it to end.

You call out, but he never answers,

Except, with the same look every time you see him.

I am a fantasy/sci-fi/smut writer, my first book "Love and Pain in Zion" is available on Amazon. I am also scribing for Medea, the Sorceress of Colchis on the blog Legends of the Veil (, and Amphitrite on In the Pantheon ( My husband and I are planning on opening up a New Age/Metaphysical store, where I am running the storefront and he is running the services in the back. Since he is already a licensed interfaith minister and can perform weddings in Ontario, and a Reiki master, we can start offering services soon. I am enrolled in Witch School International as a seminary school of the Correllian Nativist Tradition. I have mostly completed my First Degree clergy status, and am almost finished my Second Degree. Brian and I run a local temple (Temple of the Night) which is a part of the Correllian Nativist Tradition. We are currently the only temple with full temple status in Canada.
