Ashley Fernandes: “Witching Hour Bliss”

Witching Hour Bliss

sometimes at 3am, I am awake.
I open the window and drink the night.
the cold air hits my lungs like ice,
but it feels good to feel
something that isn’t pain.
I let the night flood my body,
making me whimper,
and leaving me melancholy.
but it feels good to feel
something that is better than pain.
then I close the window,
drunk on the night.

 

Ashley Fernandes is an emerging Canadian writer based in the Toronto area who is currently working fervently on her first novel, Hummingbirds in the Night Sky. When she is not writing, she spends her days reading for inspiration or fantasizing about drinking hot chocolate in autumn weather.
