The Ladies of Horror
Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!

004_APR_IMGStale Lord
by Alina Măciucă

I am the lord of the underworld.
My blood flows in rivers that pierce
the flesh of your Mother.
I am a peaceful lord. 
A stale lord.
I let water erode my veins.
And the water drips,
and the water drops
sculpt
the figures of monsters and gods
on the walls of my arteries.
I am the lord of the deep. 
Sometimes their feet slip,
when they descend into 
the caverns of my heart.
 
Their hands let go.
Tireless ones, fearless ones. 
Their bones break and crunch,
their flesh tears open,
their blood flows woven with mine. 
I am a peaceful lord.
A stale lord.
I only feast when bodies break

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.

    A creepily terrific poem.

  2. Love the premise here – the power and confidence exuded by an otherwise dormant lord – great work.
