Tell the Story Challenge – Reaching Out – A macabre poem.

I’ve been tagged in a Tell the Story Challenge by my Pal, Rory, A Guy Called Bloke, click on the link to his post:

Tell The Story Challenge – Don’t Look …

 

He has given me this picture and asked me to write a story or poem: Well here goes.

Looking down from the gallery

At the very top of the stairs,

I catch a glimpse of Cousin Valerie,

Sneaking up on me, unawares.

I was shocked to see her standing there,

Shocked and stunned, it has to be said,

Because it was like some dark nightmare,

Cousin Valerie was very dead.

Yet here she was reaching out to me,

A feverish look in her pale blue eyes

Eyes that were glassy and could not see,

Yet full of hateful malice and unsaid why’s.

I didn’t cry or shed one tear,

I didn’t try to run away,

I stood my ground without a fear,

I’d killed her already once, that day.

Here is a picture of Berry Pomeroy castle ruins (one of the most haunted places in Britain, apparently)

If you want to write something inspires by this picture, please be my guest. 🙂

People are far too complicated to be able to describe in a few words so I am not even going to try.
