“While all the good I would impart,
The feelings I would share,
Are driven backward to my heart,
And turned to wormwood there…”
~If This Be All by Anne Brontë
“Seek in the heart the source of evil and expunge it.”
~Light on the Path by Mabel Collins
I invoke thee, Wormwood. Expel these parasites from my heart, loosen the grip of these worms. May your bitter roots drive away the poison so that love may once more grow here.
