A blog for the midnight epiphanies and idle thoughts of a hopeless wordaholic.
Tuesday Poetics and we're asked to step into the gothic realm. It's usually far from my wheelhouse, but I'll avvago. Submitted to dVerse, December 15, 2020
It's definitely the Lady of Darkness who's guarding the castle. Love this Gothic tale, Bev 💝 thank you so much for writing to the prompt!
eternal sleep it is then. would love tostay at your castle
Groovy Goth, Beverly. Nothin left but bones. Salute
Nicely (and creepily) written.
Would it help if we attached Green and White striped awnings and hung colorful flowery flags from the turrets ... would evil be driven away? Might we save lives? I think we "superwomen" should take it on.
Hauntingly fun poem and I won't be staying there any time soon.
Love the rhyme here Bev, especially:Betwixt terrified screams and moansBut morning reveals their fateIn the form of skulls and bones. Wonderful writing my friend!
Bev, I wouldn't want to go there as its a haunted castle being guarded by the Lady of Darkness.
a dark rollicking rhyme of death ... nailed it Bev!
I enjoyed your traditional tale of terror, Bev. We one nor two castles like that around here.
A true Gothic house of horrors! Creepily done: I certainly wouldn't want to spend the night there...
Jaunty and grisly like a good folk tale.
I wonder why anyone would ever venture to a place like that... curiosity kills.
I love this tale of a haunted castle!
The mysterious Lady of Darkness sounds like a fun girl to get to know. I enjoyed this gothic tale, it hit all the dark notes perfect!
I like the way this builds toward the ending, Bev!
