Throwback Friday, Grindstone Potion, by Ivor Steven

A mystical piece of fantasy/fiction I originally wrote in July 2018, which has been revised for today’s post.

Grindstone Potion (Revised)

Before I unveiled your spellbinding disguise

You had gouged out my eyes

And splintered my bones

With your sorceress stones

You did laugh and mock

Turning my soul into crushed rock

I waited at every station

Cursed, you left me in slow motion

With witches sand in my pocket

Holding onto your luckless locket

Then I cast my heart adrift in the ocean

Finally freeing myself of your grindstone potion

G’day, and welcome to my blog site. My name is Ivor Steven, I live in Geelong, Australia. I’m an ex-industrial chemist, and a retired plumber, and a former Carer of my wife(Carole), for 30 years, who suffered from severe MS. I Write poetry about those personal thoughts, throughout and beyond my life as a Carer. I’ve been blogging for over 2 years, and writing poems for 19 years. Of course a lot of my poems are about my favourite subject Carole, but since I’ve been blogging my writings have become quite varied, humourous, mystical, observational, and even a few monster/horror poems. View all posts by ivor20
