The Ladies of Horror
Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!


Hallucination House 
by Amy Zoellers 

Hallucination House

(tripping near)

(gripping fear)

(passing by)

(shrieking cry)

(wish to die)

Through the trees, the monsters fly.

Safe inside

witches hide,

sweep the floor

and charm the door.

Corpses shake

with hair blown wild.

Cookies bake

for the devil’s child.

Pass this way

cold and gray

You’ll never see another day.

  1. Marge Simon says:

    This would make a perfect Burma Shave series, adding only “The way is paved/ with Burma Shave” — anyone know of the signs across the USA in the 40’s or 50’s?
    Good show!

  2. afstewart says:

    Excellently delightful and creepy.

  3. Love the pace of this poem and how it ramps up the creep factor while skipping along as sweetly as any red-caped child playing in the forest 🙂
