Whispered Tales

You wouldn’t know simply by looking

That something devoured

Their soul


A blackened existence

Entombed in distorted fantasy

Whispered tales from a victimizer

Sickly twisted and forged

To hurt

They lie

Not because they have to

But because they take pleasure in it

  1. Wow! That is so scary.But so true. And the victims can be totally shattered or try to carry on with their life. But they find it very difficult.

  2. How did I miss this post of a week ago? Now it has popped up to scare the heck out of me; it’s wonderfully creepy and ambiguous enough to stoke my imagination to full flame.
