The Ladies of Horror
Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!

Lady of Midnight
by Melissa R. Mendelson

Come away, sweet child.
Come away with me.
Follow the crow with the ruby eyes.
Take the road made of ice.
Stumble but do not fall.
You have yet to begin to fly.
Keep rising high, keep moving up to the sky.
See the fog across the view,
and find the crow’s feather to bring you home,
my castle in the sky
shining against the moon.
And here you will never die.
Your soul to always roam,
haunt the skeletons down below,
and your heart is mine.
I will never die.
It’ll be just you and I,
my sweet child to dine.

More from Melissa R. Mendelson:


The ghosts of the past will slither and crawl their way into the present, unleash a quiet rage upon a small town and take up residence in the darkest places that you dare not look, but one will find that deep below the surface lies a monster, who will tear its way through those standing in its path. All the bodies to fall is because she lied.
