Halloween Queens

First is Pumpkin Queen made by Bob Doucette:

It reminds me of these stickers made by Alan Aldred,
which I won in a raffle with art prints I'll share soon:

Next is Queen of Hearts made by Miss Tak:
It and the song Bits and Pieces (listen to it here) inspired this poem:

Heartless Highness

I'm not putting my heart back in to be ripped out again
I'm going to eat it then excrete it
On his throne, claiming it as my own
Without the pain, I will reign
In the buff, so my scars show everyone I'm tough.

It's for Beautiful Freaks Fest 2, hosted by 3 Halloween Queens.
We all need this outfit from my new affiliate


  1. That is a fierce bit of poetry. I like the defiance in it. The artwork you've collected to ornament your post is fan-bloody-tastic. The stickers give me such a nostalgic feeling.

  2. Berry bootiful! Love the pics. Will check out the song soon. You should share it for the next Music Monday :) ♥ xoxo

  3. "I will reign / In the buff"

    I might have to get this on a t-shirt. So much power and truth to those words, Holly. I can almost see you, giving the finger to the pain, telling it, "If you think you can break me, think again... you bastard!"

    Thank you so much for adding your strength and creativity to the BFF2!

  4. Powerful poem! I love the musical black cats depicted in the Pumpkin Queen, and that Queen of Hearts... she's perfect!

  5. What Magaly said! Your poem was brilliant, Holly! So much untamed strength!

  6. My goodness this is good!❤️ I can feel the power in your words!❤️

  7. I love the poem and that dress and knee/thigh socks are so cute!

  8. Thanks so much for the compliments! Hope you all had a happy Halloween!
