I fear I must die
If I’m to escape these fiends
In my family’s skin

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 🙂
For today’s additional experiment, I’ve collaborated with Hali from poeticfootprints.wordpress.com. It’s a two part-er post.
Half you will see here today, and the second half you can see on poeticfootprints.wordpress.com. I’ll let you guys know when that post goes live. 🙂
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
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!
Guys, pop on over to poeticfootprints.wordpress.com and check out some more of Hali’s amazing work. You might find yourself feeling inspired 🙂
Ahhhh …. Halloween costume pressure is off. The sun is out for the first time in weeks and I feel so much happier! I found a little moment over lunch to whip out this two-sentence story in honor of the pretty day:
The rain stopped and Rebekkah saw the sun for the first time since her wedding night. She stood, moaning contentedly, and shambled off between the headstones to find a stream in which to wash the dirt from her ears and nose.
So, someone said, “That’s really sick!” interpreting it as some necrophilia thing, to which I replied, “Oh, man! The only sick thing around here is your mind. I mean, really ….” But I changed it up to eliminate the confusion 🙂 ….

Funny, I didn’t get the necro part of it. Just the risen from the grave part. Ps. I’m going to feature this one next week. The art was taking longer than usual.
Cool! And, by the way, I think your skeleton sketch for this week’s (nov 17) is particularly good …. it’s got a different feel than the usual Haikuesday ones ….

Thank you 🙂 I felt like playing more with photoshop this week, so it took me in a different direction.
