Do not fret, my dear

No longer will you feel the chill––

once you are dead

    Love the images Vashti, and the words do have a chilling effect to match.

      Hi Michelle! I love the images too! They’re by one of my favorite fantasy artists, Luis Royo. If you click on either image it will take you to one of his sites and you can see more of his stuff. Thank you! 🙂

    Wow! Love the contrast in the poem. The pictures give it a real sense of darkness.

      Hello! Thank you! Luis Royo is the best when it comes to dark fantasy art. I’m so happy you enjoyed the poem. 😀
