Celestial Wishing Well
Author: Marion Carroll


I am the spark of want in the night;
the burning of need in your soul.
It only takes one thought to ignite
the fire that swallows you whole.

I am the Lady who steals your dreams,
and I have a given name.
I am the Mistress of Fire.
I touch you, you're drawn to my flame.

I am the hunger for all that you think
makes you complete as a man.
My gaze is an invitation to drink
from the gifts that flow from my hands.

I am the Lady who feeds from you need,
and I have a given name.
I'm the Empress of your Desire.
You'll be drenched in my torrent of rain.

I am the longing for all you can't have;
you are my unwitting prey.
You'll fall on your knees, when shot with my love.
Resist me? You won't get away.

I am the Lady in relentless pursuit,
and I have a given name.
I'm the Seductress of Temptation.
You're the hunted in my game.

I am the darkest of all your fears;
a craving you cannot deny.
I'm what you see when you look in the mirror.
You fight me, but don't even try.

I am the Lady whose spell you gave into;
and I have a given name.
I'm the Sorcerress of Passion.
Nothing about me is tame.

I am the voice that whispers of joy;
the song that plays on in your head.
The sweet lure of melody, I will employ,
when I take you into my bed.

I am the Lady who holds you in thrall;
and I have a given name.
I am the Siren of Rapture.
I called to you and you came.

I am the well of pleasure you thirst for;
the sweetness you taste on your lips.
In anticipation you walk through my door,
and touch me with trembling fingertips.

I am the Lady who takes you to Heaven;
and I have a given name.
I am the Spirit of Ectasy.
I've taken away all your pain.

I'm all of the women you've ever dreamed of.
There is no wish I cannot fullfill.
I am the stars in your skies up above -
your celestial wishing well.

I am the Lady who brings them to you;
and I have a given name.
I am the Goddess of Love.
And we are all one and the same.

In your longest hour of deepest grief,
I'll enfold you in my arms.
When you close your eyes and pray for relief,
I'll see that you come to no harm.

I am the Lady who shrouds you in safety;
and I have a given name.
I am your Angel of Mercy.
And I will never go away.

Love, Is The Shelter For A Heart, To Rest

You are the only shadow that I can touch, you slip from reality and touch my heart, with the fantasy, of a man's heart come true, you are many things and have many ways to touch a man's heart. I love your heart's poetry, You have power and desire to make a dream from heaven, fall into a heart. You have power, you have power, go back to sleep, sweet witch of love, I feel your power.
