The Word Witch

Forced To Use Her Magic Incorrectly

By Meggen Olson Published 3 months ago 1 min read

I often feel like I don't have the words to say what I want to say

nor do I have the time to say everything I need to

because no one will give it to me

and I always run out of it when I need more.

I suppose that's the risk you run when you make your life

around words and their magic

see I'm a diviner and a writer

my craft is in my intuition and my ability to share it

hell, I've spent money to learn what other people have said words should be to me

and yet when it matters

I feel the magic slip away from me like it's water through a sieve

and it always seems to happen when the world is on my back

and it expects me to be able to use my craft in a way

that explains the depth and complexity of who I am

it always leaves me feeling like a failure when I don't do what I've been asked to do.

even worse than that is when my brain doesn't let me use my magic for what I intend to
