I am an award-winning storyteller and photographer who has published several mystery stories with Alfred Hitchcock’s Mystery Magazine. My sci-fi mystery novels are on Amazon and are available in both e-book and paperback formats.
A friend of mine gave me this book knowing what a fan I am of all things Gothic, Horror and Fantasy. And from the get-go, let me just say that I wasn’t disappointed. Hailey Piper’s novella transcends the LGBTQ niche in which it is usually placed. It is truly a magnificent story.
Death has made himself a home In the marvelous shrine That was once your beauty. I long to wake you from Your hideously serene sleep.
From the gray ruins of my memory, She rises like a shadow vague and unsteady, Shrouded in deep gloom, Only to ignite in preternatural light,
You are but a dream, The whisp of an ideal, A vision from my memory That seeps through my fingers Like the sand on a wind-blown shore.
i didn’t mean to love her. i didn’t mean to hurt her. i didn’t mean to leave her in an unmarked grave. i didn’t mean to break her heart.
sleep, beautiful sleep, forever frozen in time and memory where no one will ever see you age or decay... captured at perfection.
