The Ladies of Horror
Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!


Lonely Voice
by Amy Zoellers 

the You in you—-is it your own?

but no, you’re wrong.

it is imbued, suggested by our song,

our music, we, who walk alone


and chained here, having wandered weird—

our music, we, who walk alone

we shelter in the gramophone,

suggestions haunt unseen, unfeared


infested, this Victrola, filled

with placeless souls who only dare

to flick the drapes, perfume the air

as pained and jeweled songs we share


songs to you, accursed, entwined

here chained, having wandered weird

our vessel, relic: left behind

Now who will listen? Who will mind?

Who are we with none to hear?

    Very haunting and beautiful.

  2. Marge Simon says:

    The poem fits the styles in the photograph so well! A bit of spectral wind from the past.

  3. This is great – so evocative – love the line “having wandered weird” which carries us with the sound of the trapped souls.
