Do you know about the witches?
Do you know about the witches? They leave their bodies. They do. They leave their bodies when the sky is dark and the moon is hidden.
They smear their flesh with magic grease and ride their stangs into the night sky to join the devil. The devil himself. Horns and all.
They use the red road that lives in the earth like a serpent to guide them to the sabbat. It twists and turns and writhes in the dirt. And only they can see it.
They fly upon the road searching for the man in black and Hoping they can catch a glimpse of the spirits that reach their arms out to welcome them.
Those shadows that you see in the dark night, that’s them. Searching. Yearning to meet their lord. And all the while their bodies are left empty like the shells of a cicada protected by odd symbols and roots.
Their bodies are empty when they fly. Just their naked spirits float into the night with their familiars by their side. Ghastly creatures that lure them to the devils sabbat where they sign their name in his book.
They dance and convulse to gain strength in the circle before returning back. Unnamed sorceries are released into the earth that we will never know of.
Sometimes even they forget.
