Reflection

by A.F. Stewart

Ghosts whisper from the shadows,
across the empty parks
along forgotten streets
in the echo of the world
Silhouettes in sunset
of what used to be
Of laughter, life, and hubris;
ghosts whisper from the shadows
Stains within the heavens,
mark abandoned history
and mournful wails sound
across the empty parks
Warnings never heeded
priorities gone askew
With grave reverberations
along forgotten streets
Pride falls, monuments rust
Civilizations crumble to dust
Only the bones remain
in the echo of the world

HellsEmpire_CoverHell’s Empire: Tales of the Incursion

A unique anthology of two thrones at war as the forces of Hell assault an unsuspecting Victorian Britain.The cry went out to theologians and engineers, to artificers and antiquarians, to every name which could be named. By telegraph where lines were still intact, and by volunteer riders where they were not; smuggled along the coast in fishing smacks, semaphored from hill-tops. It came without royal sanction, issued jointly by the Lords of the Admiralty and Marquess Lansdowne, the new Secretary of State for War:”In God’s name, help us. We are losing.”

Available on Amazon!

Nina D’Arcangela is a quirky horror writer who likes to spin soul rending snippets of despair. She reads anything from splatter matter to dark matter. She's an UrbEx adventurer who suffers from unquenchable wanderlust. She loves to photograph abandoned places, bits of decay and old grave yards. Nina is a co-owner of Sirens Call Publications, a co-founder of the horror writer's group 'Pen of the Damned', and if that isn't enough, put a check mark in the box next to owner and resident nut-job of Dark Angel Photography.
