    The Witch Of The Lake

    It was a Lull siesta indeed.
    Soft breezing wind, and me setting near the shelf, paying no heed.

    Looking for a fairy tale,
    It crashed onto my head-
    "The witch of the lake".
    Dark and dire, giving out spooks
    Putting it back,wondering who read such books?
    Dusk now arrived, leaving the study disheartened,
    Fantasies in my mind, with beliefs
    sharpened.
    But there's something more to
    add,
    I took that book, with all the gloom and
    sad.
    Rushing towards the room I shut the lights out.
    Why do you care? The witch asked
    aloud.
    Clumsily sitting near the corner of the
    bed,
    Going through it's pages like
    hell.
    The witch who lived near the lake,
    Dumped off by the entire race.
    Alluringly grooming her fine strands of hair
    Bided her time, before her love to appear.
    For thousands of years, she waited alone,
    Withering beauty, paleness all grown.
    She cursed the lake and hoodooed the world,
    May affection will die with no one to love.
    But, profanity struck the lake too hard,
    Now all dried up, a complete discard.

    With a beam of light I woke up from the bed,
    To keep it back on the library shelf.
    It's not to hide the witch from the world,
    But hoping for her story to be heard.

    "So why putting all the admiration to the happy fairy lands?
    Witches have their stories too,
    Which our ideal mind Often misunderstands...
