The Ladies of Horror
Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!

004_Jan_LOHBreathless
by Rie Sheridan Rose

I rise up from the depths
where I was tossed…
no need for chains
thought the lazy man
with the heavy hands
who threw me from the boat—
the wool of the sweater will
be enough.
He was wrong.
I rise up from the depths
where I was tossed…
He plummets from the stars
where he has walked…
tethered to safety
by a slender cord—
drifting downward 
weightless to meet the Earth
as it curves beneath.
Safety is illusory.
He plummets from the stars
where he has walked…
We meet in the middle—
Breathless.

Overheard in Hell:
Dark Poetry

Poems exploring hell and damnation. Tales of sorrow, vengeance, betrayal, and redemption. Ghosts, ghouls, and demons stalk these pages. Don’t read in a lonely house…in a darkened room by a single candle…

…unless you like the touch of an icy finger up your spine.

Available on Amazon!

About Nina D'Arcangela

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.

  1. I love the sense of movement in this poem – the sense of two forces, two fates colliding.

    Darkly beautiful and lyrical.
