Ew and wow Ben! That's some twisty journey you've taken us on. To have the imagination to get inside the head of such a person is really awe inspiring. I hope you're rightfully very proud of this. Bloody well done! :-) x
Wow... A teacher once told me that it is much harder than it looks to write horror because you have to get the details just right. You have absolutely nailed the horror content and imagery. A superb piece. Best wishes Milly x
currently playing catch up so I have just stumbled upon this lovely piece.
HOLY EF BENNY! Not only are you sonnet King, you seem to be Horror King too. How about we just call you King of the poetry at this point!
This piece is very Jack the Ripperish... with you being English, makes it a little more creepy.. :P Please dont tell me your some sort of time travelling Jack the Ripper who brings poems of the past!
Back to the piece itself, very descriptive. At some points where you speak of tearing at her flesh (i dont know where my mind went!) but I pictured some sort of scavenger bird pecking at it. Such as a raven..
I am now off to find part II and hope this is a continuing line of poetry.. As much as it creeps me out, you intrigue me..
