My project featuring Patrick Rahall will continue on next week 🙂
If you would like to have one of your horror haikus or two sentence stories featured here next week, leave me a comment below or #horrorHaikuesday on twitter. I’ll find you 🙂
Here today you’ll probably recognize my inktober castle (with a little new flare), let’s see what poetic words sprung from it.
Poetry inspired by Artwork:
CASTLE OF HELL
I’m been living as a prisoner of my mind,
locked away, kept deep in the darkest dungeons
The moon, like hope, only beams through the the bricks that are broken
and then reflect on the cobwebs I hang as decor,
Given with questionable intentions by uninvited guests,
but they are welcome to see the hell they helped designed!
Where bloodthirsty bats circulate the rooftops,
each one eventually finding their way inside.
Coming to suck as much out of me as they can,
but adding to my torture, they stop before life can be left behind.
Where skeletons dance behind every closed door,
their taunting voices permeate through my skull.
Where haunting ghosts repeatedly chain me to my past
They treating their gift of death with insolence,
while whispering… “keep your feelings confined”.
Skeletons dance behind every mysterious door,
I hear their songs reminding me that I can’t turn them off.
My hands are raw from my attempts to escape
but this castle grows stronger as blood and stone are combined.
Hali thank you so much for this collaboration! It’s always so much fun to see what another artist comes up with from something you create!
