The Ladies of Horror
Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!
At the Border of Night and Day
by Suzanne Madron
On the poetry of the evening breeze she came to me
Singing of the mornings yet to come
In the bleakest nights, she sang to me of stars I could not see
And daylights left undone
My Persephone, my dream, my light
She waited for me to rise, too long
The vines drew lines across her brow
The birds made nests of her hair
And stole her soul through song
In a dream, she waited there
Until she became as the trees
And still, I slept beneath the ground
With my heart hardened to the cold of stone
The caves became my gasping mouth, my screaming eyes, my silent ears
And the crawling darkness became my home

More from Suzanne Madron:
The house across the street seems to go on the market every few months, but this time nothing about the sale is normal, including the new owners. No sooner has the for sale sign come down and the neighborhood is thrown into a Lovecraftian nightmare and the only way to find out is to attend the house warming party.
