Altered Words - Fixed as Death
It's time for another Altered Words post!
This time, I "found" a poem in a literary classic - Bram Stoker's Dracula!
What is Altered Words all about, anyway?
In case you missed my first post, Altered Words is my take on "found fiction", where I take a story, poem, or other literary work and try to "find" a story within by simply crossing out the words I do not want to include in my piece.
Found in Dracula by Bram Stoker
All was dark and silent.
Black shadows thrown by the moonlight,
full of mystery.
Not a thing seemed to be stirring, all grim and fixed as death.
White mist creeping over me,
stealing up to the windows,
my waking thoughts merged in dreams.

And hey! If you have a copy of Dracula, I'd LOVE it if you tried your hand at "finding" your own story within! Try the same page I found my story on, or choose your own. And don't forget to share it in the comments!
Until next time.....
