The Nine Realms – Jotunheim: Strength and Might

traditional enemies

.

the land surrounding us
a curved body
bones worn to stone

.

cruel daughters forcing us to find
a cure for magic

.

a cure for life
in my case
for dying

.

every time my skin splits
I think of her
the serpent who reminded me
what pain could be

.

part of me always thought
if I could commit to life or death
I would have one

.

could and would and should
my fury blinds me now
as indifference did then

.

not immune to dying,
just unable to be dead.
impotent in the opposites of being
and the other

.

incapable to live
as in the grip of death, I did

.

Frostbitten mind

by Mina Polen 

.

Through darkness
…………..and eternal sunshine

.

darkness and brightness
…………..like never-ending dreams

.

frostbitten mind
awaits in another dream

.

thoughts
………………………repeated

.

the pebble falls inside your mind

.

thoughts
……………………..repeated

.

thoughts
…………. being broken

tongues
………….being broken

.

day and night
the mind is playing tricks

.

the night is long
the day is long

time stopping
the mind is flying in circles

.

.
