There's magma boiling in her frostbitten veins;
incandescent pixie dust and
                                soot-stained stars,
sluggishly making its way through
a childish heart — wishing for one last chance
to spread her wings and soar to
                                          Neverland.
The term 'witch oil' comes from His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman. It's a phrase the Gyptians use to describe Lyra. If you've read them, you may understand why I used it. And then you'll understand this. If you haven't read them, well...here's a little hint: adolescence and adulthood fight against one another most of the series. In this poem...I'll just say the same sort of thing is happening.

Random burst of poetry is random.

Oh my god. Your poetry is so amazing and it's a big deal when I say that because I never go and actively read poetry, but this is so gorgeous. Hnnng. It makes ME want to write poetry, but I know I won't actually do it because I could never write something like this.  STOP BEING TALENTED.

Short, sharp, beautiful. And 'soot-stained stars' is a bloody brilliant image.
