inspired by florence + the machine’s “no light no light” song, a spell to figure out what you or another need to say someone, and to help you say, be it an apology or a confession
You can’t choose what stays and what fades away And I’d do anything to make you stay No light, no light, tell me what you want me to say Would you leave me, if I told you what I’ve done? And would you leave me, if I told you what I’ve become?
💡 gather: rosemary, dill, and two blue candles
💡 perform on or by “the empty space in” your bed, at night.
💡 carve your name in one candle, the other person’s name on the other.
💡 dress your representative candle with dill and rosemary
💡 light the other person’s candle first, and let it burn down a little. then use it to light your candle
💡 blow out the candles, go to bed.
💡 play the song while you perform the ritual, dance and sing along if you like.
💡 the answer will start to form after that morning, in the things you say to other people, but not that person.
