On Writing for the Lost Souls...

There are so many stories inside of me scraping their way to get out.
Sometimes when I'm writing my stories, the lights flicker;
The shadows dance;
The winds whisper outside my windows.

That's how I know I'm on the write right track;
That's when I know I'm connected to the darkness;
This is when I give the shadows their voice.

Nightmare #108

The clown came to me and recited a poem...

Do not go near the pond or it will swallow you whole.
Do not stroll along the beaten path
For there are things that want to make you their own
And I cannot control their wrath.

Do not go looking for ghosts
For they will find you first.
And do not taunt the spirit world
For you cannot predict what they will curse.

Fear the dark and respect the night;
Hold close your own shadow and soul
Bask in the sun and ignore the moon,
Lest it play you for a fool.

~Deevious ~

Kindred Minds

This is my interpretation of kindred minds.
It is a syncing together of one pain or one event or one person.
And so we all feel it, but not all of us will talk about it.
That's where the writers come in to take over.
This is when the poets bleed their souls onto paper.
And this is when the authors have their way with words.
And I hope I can do it all justice.
All of this emotion and imagination must be put to use.

Bury A Friend

This is #MusicMonday and this song is wicked.
Billie Eilish is crazy talented. 
I love her style, her darkness and her delivery.
Will you give this one a like, Creepsters?

What do you want from me?
Why don't you run from me?
What are you wondering? 
What do you know? 
Why aren't you scared of me?
Why do you care for me?
When we all fall asleep, where do we go?

Book Club Business - February 2019

Hi Creepsters!
Welcome back to our Night Lights Book Club.
For this month, we are looking at a classic.

Dante's Inferno has been added to Evil's Library.
Unless you've been living under a rock for the past 700 years, you've had to hear about this book.
It has stood the test of time and is referenced repeatedly 
throughout our entertainment venues, social media and society in general.
I am currently working on a piece of fiction that involves the afterlife 
and that of Heaven and Hell.
I wanted to revisit this classic as a kind of summoning for my writing;
A bit of research for my work.
The images and writing of Dante is haunting and memorable.
Check this one out and let me know your thoughts.

The Demon's At The Door

  Hi Creepsters.
  Here is another short story from the recesses of my mind.
  It is based on a nightmare that I had a while back 
  and I thought it was time to bring it to life.
  I think the underlying nature of this tale is that of guilt 
  and uncertainty 
  and perhaps a sliver of evil.


  The Demon's At The Door - Nightmare #130

  I left him.
  I did.
  I left him behind in that darkness.
  And I've been ashamed of myself ever since.
  Sick to my core.
  Unable to forgive myself.
  Unable to forget that -
  That thing;
  That creature.
  That hideous monster that devoured him like a last meal.

  I see his face everywhere -
  It haunts me -
  Taunts me -
  Tortures me worse than any creature ever could have hurt me.

  I remember his eyes -
  Big, brown, clear eyes, full of light and promise.
  Full of conviction and passion.
  Until he saw it.  
  I could see his eyes fill with fear and disbelief.

  I think we saw it at the same time.
  I didn't even pause.
  I didn't think he would either.
  But he did.
  I told him to run, but he froze in place.
  Stood still and stiff, like a statue outside a stadium.

  I didn't even turn around, not until I was in the church.
  Not until I was through the doorway.
  That's when I heard his first scream.

  Then, another wail followed.
  It sounded wet and I knew he had blood in his throat.
  I looked into that cold, dark night and saw his body drop to the ground.
  A huge, shadow-like creature with silver hair 
  and crustacean claws hovering over him.

  I yelled so loud and so long I thought my lungs would burst, "David!"

  But the people behind me pulled me into the chapel and closed the doors.
  I kicked and screamed and fought them like a junkie being hauled off to rehab.
  I refused to be consoled and blamed them for his demise.
  I cursed them out in this holy place until there were no hateful words left to spew.
  When I finally collapsed, I laid the blame on myself.
  Blamed myself for loving him in the first place; 
  for accepting his marriage proposal in such a wicked and uncertain time; 
  for allowing myself to believe in a future.
  My mind tortured me with visions and illusions of his death.
  My guilt conjured up unreasonable scenarios and ridiculous outcomes.
  After the tears and the self-loathing, I passed out.
  I fell into an exhausted sleep only to find a land of broken dream pieces 
  and hellish nightmares that left me with more questions than answers.

  And when I awoke to more screams, I realized they were my own.
  A fevered sweat and a swollen head 
  and an aching heart brought me back to reality.
  Brought me back to this wretched new world where monsters roamed free 
  and humans became the hunted.

  A knock at the main door interrupted my thoughts.

  No one would answer it.
  No one would dare.

  But I dared to open it.
  I wanted answers.

  I threw away any regard for safety or for myself.
  I ran to the door with grandiose thoughts of a David reborn, or better yet, saved.  
  I led myself to believe that he had survived the attack.

  The others begged me not to open the door; 
  Reminded me not to invite whomever - or whatever - 
  was at the door into our safe space; Into this holy place.

  “Remember, they cannot break the threshold unless you invite them in,” 
  one of the elders reminded me as I reached for the door handle.  

  “Do not invite them in,” another elder whispered from behind me.

  I threw back the deadbolt and swung open the oak door.  
  “David?” I asked, expecting to see him, 
  wanting nothing more than to fold up that previous nightmare 
  and tuck it away into the alcoves of my mind.  

  Instead, a ghastly creature of great height and width filled the doorway.  
  It’s skin was gray and brittle, like dried leather. 
  It had patches of silver fur around its neck, like a lion’s mane.  
  The creature was huge and hideous and looked like it hadn’t slept in years.  

  “What did you do with David?” I demanded.  

  It studied me.

  “What did you do to him?” I cried out with all the anger I had ever felt in my life.

  It breathed heavily, emitting an awful air of what smelled a lot like  
  raw burger cooking in a frying pan.   
  It spoke softly and with a grin, “I set him free.”

The Sad Truth

"If a spider walks onto your bed, you squish it.
If a butterfly lands on your bed, you take a picture....
You kill everything that doesn't have pretty wings."

There's No Need To Fear What Lives In Your Shadows...

Happy Weekend, Creepsters.
I had a question for all of you.
Do you follow your horoscope?
Are you a believer of the stars?
Can you get through the day without an astrological update or tweet?

I am a believer in the cosmos and although I do like to read my horoscope whenever I can, I do not plan my days or nights by them or any of the predictions they may claim. I really think we make our own way as we go.  However, I did wake up to this post by one of the accounts I follow and it resonated with me and I thought how close to my heart it is...

And if you're on Twitter follow The Moon Tarot
It's a great place to visit.

I will repeat this throughout my day, but especially during the night,
when the nightmares come for me.

"There's no need to fear what lives in your shadows."

     Amen, Creepsters.
