Write Her Story
by Michelle Garza
I pierced the veil, reached out for you. I cast aside my burial garments at the calling of my name. You, a lonesome wanderer, found shelter beside my sepulcher in a storm. Your dreams were filled with visions of my body as it once was with my pale skin and dark hair. My lips are still full and red, but not with wanton. I’ve decorated them with the blood of your nag. I come to you dressed in moonlight with a kiss bearing eternal slumber, relieving warmth that only eternity can bring. Weather the gales in my arms and every tempest thereafter wrapped in the flesh of an immortal, with a heart like stone.

More from Michelle Garza:
Xibalba, home of torture and sacrifice, is the kingdom of the lord of death. He stalked the night in the guise of a putrefied corpse, with the head of an owl and adorned with a necklace of disembodied eyes that hung from nerve cords. He commanded legions of shapeshifting creatures, spectral shamans, and corpses hungry for the flesh of the living. The Mayans feared him and his realm of horror. He sat atop his pyramid temple surrounded by his demon kings and demanded sacrifices of blood and beating hearts as tribute to him and his ghostly world.
These legends, along with those that lived in fear of them, have been dead and gone for centuries. Yet now, a doorway has been opened in Georgia. A group of college students seek their missing professor, a man who has secretly uncovered the answer to one of history’s greatest mysteries. However, what they find is more than the evidence of a hidden civilization. It’s also a gateway to a world of living nightmares.
