will-o’-the-wisp

Oh, will-o’-the-wisp of the magical swamp,

Oh, night wanderer of the ghostly damp,

Guide my way through your mystical lamp,

Please take me where the fairies camp!

━━━━━━━━◇◆◇━━━━━━━━

I am tired to death, yet my spirit alive,

A little low on glow; it needs to revive,

Be my light, give me one lucky chance,

Please take me where the fairies dance!

━━━━━━━━◇◆◇━━━━━━━━

My body has limits hence left it to rest,

But you can take my soul to the forbidden forest.

I want to be happy; I deserve to shine,

With wee folks, I wish to wine and dine!

━━━━━━━━◇◆◇━━━━━━━━

Left my earthly cloak, behind to rust,

I wish to cleanse my spirit in pixie dust,

Bathe under a stream of silvery moonlight,

Sing the elven song of love and Delight!

━━━━━━━━◇◆◇━━━━━━━━

I have crossed all humanly hurdles,

To be welcomed to the fairy circles,

Beyond which lies an enchanted castle,

A kingdom of peace, free of hustle-bustle!

━━━━━━━━◇◆◇━━━━━━━━

But I am stuck here, lost my way,

Near a dark swamp, what can I say,

Oh dear, will-o’-the-wisp I think I am dead,

To say that to me, were you afraid?

━━━━━━━━◇◆◇━━━━━━━━

But I know I was shedding my skin,

Moving to a strange place without any kin,

Then to me, you appeared as light,

You bestowed upon me a final wishful sight!

━━━━━━━━◇◆◇━━━━━━━━

Oh, will-o’-the-wisp, I reached my end,

One last favour that only you can lend,

A simple wish, I promise it’s not grand,

Just take me to my beautiful fairyland!

━━━━━━━━◇◆◇━━━━━━━━

I will tell them a story of a guiding champ,

A will-o’-the-wisp of the magical swamp,

The night wanderer of ghostly damp,

Through the brightness of its mystical lamp,

It showed me the way to my wishful fairy camp!

    • Thanks for reading Brad, not sure if i misfit the magical elements with a conceptual but fictional afterlife, as you are aware supernatural theme is one of my favorites, so I am always a bit skeptical on the delivery of the poetic content and its overall readability. So I have my doubts about this one, not that I am not content writing it.
