Lesleigh May Hart is an Australian writer, who’s style is dark, disturbing and Gothic. This includes three ongoing works: Bedtime Stories for Purple Girls (short stories), The Blood (erotic horror) and Naked Violet (poetry & prose). These are all recommended for a mature audience.
Excerpt from The Rabbit, Chapter One in Bedtime Stories for Purple Girls.
Rabbit annihilated Gary’s life. In its flowery summer dress, the rabbit shed tears, not for Gary, but herself. She wondered how many times he would have to die in this small dingy room, but Daddy did have to die. The Rabbit cuddled her teddy, returned to her hutch and slept.
Excerpt from The Blood: Chapter One.
“What are you going to do to me?” Lise whispered.
“I will do nothing,” the Queen said laughing. “I am unsure whether to gag you or not. I want to hear you beg, but it is distracting too.” With a childish grin, the Queen said, “why don’t we play it by ear, unless I take your ear.”
My latest poem, Glowing Embers.
My body has trouble forgetting,
It relives the bloodletting,
My brain says never mind,
Perhaps it is more kind.
I could smell you if I were blind,
Aftershave and sweat combined,
I know our marriage bed,
Flashbacks to how I fled.
I have lost the exact time,
Nor the day of the war crime,
No anniversary to recall,
The night I was your thrall.
I tried to forget by drinking,
But instead, I was sinking,
I became a toy to destroy,
Anyone’s Helen of Troy.
I love and trust another man,
Now there is a new floor plan,
But still the body remembers,
We make love amidst the embers.
Thoughts of you bring contempt,
I know you will never repent,
But yet the body remembers,
I hope one day it will forget.
