Featured Book
The Victorian Cage
by Carol Fowler

This is the first of my books. It's unlike the other two in that it could be classified as a young adult, but it's okay for adults, too. And just remember. If you read me..

When will the dark creatures of this demented realm cease to be?

              Coiled in a corner...

               ready to spring,

               he patiently awaits...

               his prey of the day.

               Singing and skipping,

               innocent and carefree

               she rushes inside,

               no worries foreseen.

               He's plotting and planning...

               despicable, diabolical acts.

                Destruction of purity,

                 fearing no wrath.

                Sweetly she sings...

                 her dollies now sleep,

                 dresses for bed...

                  says her prayers...

                  happy and safe.

                  Evil inside him

                  ruptures and bursts.

                  He summons Lucifer

                  for one final talk.

                  Now slithering , sneaking

                   around corners...he stops.

                   She never suspects

                   this innocent child.

                   The horror that's

                    stalked her...

                    the horror outside.

                    One fateful second

                     is all that it takes.

                     Destruction of innocence...

                      a child is lost.

2nd attempt to post a review - the server hung up on me.....
You have handled a horrific subject with great feeling and sensitivity.
Too many writers shy away from portraying the grotesqueries of the human state, this is well written and well concieved.

This is very powerful in its evocation of the destruction of innocence. When will this world become what it should be?
