Taking a Stab at the Occult

She's made a voodoo doll of her former husband.
He's truly a terrible guy. She pokes the doll with
Needles and burns it. So far, there's no word
That he has been injured, but she likes abusing
Her symbol for him, and she wishes that, one
Day, she'll hear he's been stricken with sharp,
Inexplicable pains.

Reading this, there's no mistaking how she may be feeling about the man, huh! lol Your words make the portrayal absolutely vivid. Nicely done, as always, merci. It's not a feeling I can relate to, though... wishing that a terrible person suffers. I'm thinking that must be awful to feel like that.

I was in Trinidad & Tobago with my cousin
it reminds me of that, I was walking in a village in the early morning and I heard the tam tam, it scared me a bit
