Malleus Maleficarum


Malleus Maleficarum: A Monorhyme

Your words enchanting,
her cold heart melting.

Your skills in spell binding,
stopped her from searching—

the truth of lying
the ache of loving
the death of living.

But like a star twinkling
a velvet night ending,
a witch retiring,
you start fading.

    1. Yay! Thank you, Mel! You’re the first person that I thought about when I read the meaning/info about Malleus Maleficarum. I thought you are the best person to write a story or a poem out of those words because your imagination is limitless! ❤❤❤

      1. yay! so here’s what I have so far. You can do them in any order. They’re just fun words I thought you’d enjoy playing with. I enjoyed them!
        Nefilbata – one who lives in the clouds if his imagination, a cloud-walker
        Nelipot – barefoot
        Redamancy – requited love
        Rantipole – Reckless, a young reckless person
        and this really cool twitter prompt:

      2. I have no idea. I haven’t gotten that far and I have a few stories that don’t fit this. We’ll have to see what develops. I just thought these words were fun and that you might want to play with them too. Feel free to share them with others!

      1. yes I saw! I have a few more words to add to it which I want to try and write stories for in August. I follow a bunch of prompts on twitter and have been gleaning interesting (story-worthy) words from them 🙂

    1. Awww. Really? This is my response to your word prompt that I am not really sure of. I am not sure if I did justice to that gorgeous word because writing fantasy is not my forte. So thank you, Sarah
