Halloween Micro Story- Fiction by Liyona

Dark and crooning. I am starving. Ripping my feathers to satisfy my hunger. I perch only for the glory of a wandering soul’s gaze. Waiting. Slowly my hunger grows as does the darkness. Shrieks. Caws. My talons sink; deep. The screams are devoured by my hunger; I feast.

Myself Unknown – Free Verse Poetry by Liyona

Radiate from me

And never be afraid

To speak light

In this evensong,

The grapes of wrath

Led me astray

Who will call

Me home?

Remember all of me

And never be afraid

To sing love

In this service

The body longs

To be whole

Who will laugh

At me?

Understand the me

A mirror that has

Yet to reflect

In this movement

Hands and feet

Bring me home

Who will name

My eyes?
