Collector of Souls – Poetry

January 17, 2016

for JusJoJan – Prompt: Collection


Collector of Souls

I know you are there
feel the electric intensity
surrounding you

You’ve come to collect
on my soul
offered once so willingly

Why didn’t you come
when I begged for death
bled for it?

Wasn’t it enough
that my darkened heart
went cold?

Or that my mind snapped
and left me
to die alone?

Now that my demons
are all washed away
you’ve come

but I no longer wish to pay

  1. Love your writing Lori! Your writing is the stuff I love to read! It’s inspiring being a hardcore horror man.

    • Thanks Dan πŸ™‚ I just happen to love the dark side of life… even though people tell me that I am so “light” bleah! I also love horror, so that helps me a lot too πŸ™‚

      • My sister thinks horror never bothers me because I focus on the story and characters. People tell me my books are extremely terrifying and that is the way you want horror to be. I usually do light horror but the death of horror in this decade has motivated me to write more scary books. The world needs more horror not everyone can see the good it brings.

      • This is true.. I write a mixture.. some really scary, some not quite so, some with humor and some just twisted. I like to mix things up and it allows my readers to relax with my writing.

      • I just wrote an awesome song for the book ‘Freddy vs Jason 2’ fan fiction Vincent Price sings to Rita B’s character. It’s something the real Vincent would do.

      • Oh wow… I will have to add it to my schedule to read πŸ˜€ I will be stopping by your blog in a bit.

      • Cool my latest post is Vincent Price’s song. Price makes anything sound amazing with his voice.

      • Yes, that he does!

      • He would be a good person to talk to when down. Price really enjoyed his life to the fullest.

      • Oh yes, I would definitely be able to confide in him… I love reading about him. Fascinating man!

      • Vincent Price is awesome I wish I could have met him. I will have to read more about him. I love him in ‘Monster Club’ he made that movie awesome.

      • He is definitely fascinating.. I think there is a bio or autobio written about him, but I don’t know the name of it. Monster Club was great πŸ˜€

      • yea that monologue at the end of monster club comparing men to monsters was great. Price was a genius. I am going to try to add a Price like monologue in this book.

      • Oh! That would be awesome! Good luck working that in πŸ™‚

      • Yea my sister is a great actress she is perfect to help me create and capture the perfect Price monologue.

      • Awesome πŸ˜€

      • I just set up a Twitter Account and posted those tags hope I get some new readers.

      • awesome! you should tweet your posts each time you post one on WP and use those tags.. it just may drive that traffic your way πŸ˜€

  2. “Powerful evocation,” she said, blown by the intensity of the words.
