The Ladies of Horror
Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!


The Detail in the Stitching 
by R.A. Clarke 

Come to me, come to me.

Oh, how you’re weary.

So broken hearted—

filled with such fury.


Closer now, closer now.

Don’t feel so alone.

I’m here to help you

make others atone.


Pick me up, pick me up.

Yes, feel every stitch.

The price is just right

for this fabric witch.


Share with me, share with me.

Lay your burdens to rest.

Tell me who hurt you.

Just whom shall we test?


Pay for me, pay for me.

I’m your doll to claim.

Then I’ll make you mine

and we’ll curse his name.


Take me home, take me home.

For malevolent fun.

You’ll feel so much better

when playtime is done.


Pray to me, pray to me.

May two become one.

Make me your right hand.

It is time we begun.


Play with me, play with me.

Now let’s get cooking!

With fire, spite, and evil

while nobody’s looking.


Take the pins, take the pins.

As many as you like.

It’s his fault he hurt you.

It’s your turn to strike.


Sink them in, sink them in.

Blood sprays from his lips.

That man kissed another.

Let’s stab him to bits.


Make him beg, make him beg.

First one, two, then four.

Let’s laugh as he writhes;

make him fall to the floor.


Kill with me, kill with me.

Three pins to the heart.

Get rid of your baggage.

Now a new life can start.

Let Your Lips Twitch

Comedy is everywhere if you allow yourself to see it—to feel it. Between these covers, you’ll find short fiction in several genres. Each tale is infused with unique characters and comical situations, some rooted in reality, others certainly not. Flip the page and join a jewel heist executed by bumbling thieves at a gastronomy party, meet a lowly soul gifted the fantastical chance to redo an all-consuming moment of regret, or sweat alongside a father as he realizes his daughter is growing up too fast. Turn another page and you’ll enjoy clowning around while meeting Mr. Right, then zoom in on a perfectly focused meet cute, or feel Mother Nature’s wrath as a rebellious fishing excursion goes all kinds of wrong. There is something in this collection for everyone to enjoy. Let humour in all its glorious forms tempt your lips to move. Don’t fight the urge to smile. Go ahead and let your lips twitch.

Available on Amazon!

  1. Love this – the sing-song rhyming rhythm nicely disguises the doll’s wickedness – after all, it’s only a game…isn’t it?

  2. Great poem! Where can I find a doll like this? 🙂

    A delightfully wicked poem.
