Caught in the Noir #dark #poetry #atozchallenge #photography #napowrimo

bloodied cobblestones

you think to cleverly slink behind

catching me off my guard

but I heard you there

and now you

must be

aware

you

must listen

I await in the dark

for this rare opportunity

think again in your stealthy stalk

” FOOL”-I have not become your easy prey

Nautilus

This year for  A to Z challenge, I am using the Nautilus as my inspiration all month. The shell has many chambers (at least enough to fit all the letters.)  You will find poetry,  You will find some dark stuff (as I am attempting to branch into the horror genre), You will also see a smattering of short stories or prose (some with children in mind) others as lessons that we can all learn from. I look forward to  meeting you and getting to know some talented writers over this month long writing journey. Please check over at the A to Z challenge and see what they are up to; they are a fine bunch of folks.

Get the Point #poetry #photography #womenofhorror

the very point

One moment

you find me

weak, vulnerable

*

Circling in

tightening the knot

beneath hooded eyes

*

Exhalation’s drops

caught in sinister scowl

 delighting in pre-victory

*

My only move

I execute

straight through your heart

This poem is dedicated to all the ladies who write horror – check out the line-up over at Siren’s Call. Please Visit Blaze McRob’s blog and tell him one of the Women in Horror said “Hello”
