What a thrill

  • Source material for this piece is Michael Jackson’s Thriller
  • For my 300th post I wanted to go big with a legendary song and my take on the song and iconic music video. Enjoy

Through the graveyard

Emerging from the tombstones mist

Limping on loose limbs

Staccato zombies step

to a midnight symphony

A thriller no mortal can escape

Hunger grows

Their horrid faces moan with slim dripping down the chin

Her eyes frozen to witness the horrors taking place

She’s a fleeting image

With nowhere else to run but an dilapidated house

Their blood hunt intensifies

as the bloodless moon shines

Cornering their prey helpless

They see she’s ready for death

Skeleton hands grab her to take her on a dark fantasy flight

Awakened to normalcy

His towering image

a mirror without reflection

Faceless death

Consuls her from her fears

but you see he’s a dream weaver

creating nightmares from her memories

  • #Onmywaytoamilestone was what I would hashtag on Twitter once I knew I had 10 posts left to reach this milestone. I’d like give praise to all the people who I’ve interviewed on my writer interview series (you know who you are), the frequent readers (some who like but don’t follow, not sure what that’s all about) and the publishing journals that I’ve submitted to that gave me that “unfortunately” speech of rejection, which is a blessing but a momentary misfortune. My takeaway from these situations is that, if I fed into a defeated mindset I would not be here at this milestone and would have gave up with writing all together which is what “THEY” want me or (you) to do, and that will NEVER EVER HAPPEN. With every “door” that closes,  there’s another one to knock on. The one that always has its”door” open is SpillWords which I’m a frequent contributor on the site, and I’m grateful to have had a featured post on the front page. Hopefully another one in the future. Anyways, here is to another hundred with more exemplary, thoughtful and raw content that I’ve been producing since I’ve joined WordPress. PEACE and MUCH LOVE,
  • Part 2 will include a look back at the first half (100 – 150) since this one is (150- 200)
