Spyder Collins: Halloween Showcase

Creepy creature double feature…

Part One

Rusalka – The Wickedness of a Daughter

Drowned. A homely girl with little talent, sure to be an eternal burden. 

I was ugly, that’s what the boys would mock. Usefulness escaped me. I could clean, whether it be our hovel, or the fish papa caught at the lake.

Papa drowned me. Violently, for spoiling the day’s catch. Accidents happen, but not by ugly girls. 

He should’ve known it wasn’t wise to fish the lake he drowned me in. Now he will be my company in this watery grave and help to keep this malevolence in check. 

Good thing.  Else this ugly water witch would drown you, too.


Part Two

Would it be wrong of me to skin you,

to fillet the flesh from your ivory bones

Pain spurts from your crooked mouth,

serenading me with your pitiful groans

The warmth of your blood bathes me,

as you cry frantic to your God and atone

Matters none cause your death is at hand,

and it is your soul that I will own
