Vivia's Book: Fey ribbon (poem)

Fey ribbon knits and knots, and this poem/spell unties - it is, just about, a villanelle, but it's also what the Coven cast to separate our unfortunately conjoined pair in my mini-series for this challenge. (Masterpost if you're following it.)


Twin souls that out of magic grew
Unknitting, unknotting, unweaving: no more
By these words may one make two

Two pairs of eyes must see two different views
A link that nature never looked for
Twin souls that out of magic grew

Sharing death in life would both undo
Enforced togetherness would lead to war
By these words may one make two

Blood magic, hearts connected all untrue
Unevenly distributes age's store
Twin souls that out of magic grew

Seeing separation, here they flew
The universal balance to restore
By these words may one make two

Splitting the unwanted links clear through
Letting two deaths, two lives, separated, soar
Twin souls that out of magic grew
By these words may one make two

So is this really a light or is it an oncoming train?

I think we need more stories to clarify, you know...

Beautiful work!

Stunning use of language, very witchy.

I do hope this works, because then no more Willow pain, right? Right?

Heh. I've written about three villanelles ever, and they're all pretty dire. But it's nice to have a form to work with.

A villanelle! *Bows down*

So... is Spike all human now? Will there be more? Please?

I like a nice strong form to work with; it makes poetry a lot easier... Thanks!

So fascinating and the language is perfectly witchy.

Thank you! I love to write this kind of strong form poem for fannish things. Even though it breaks many rules, pffft.
