Mysteries can also be in a form of a poem.
(Like the ones Edgar Allen Poe wrote.)
Write from the
victim's or eyewitness's point of view.
Start with a great title.

A poem that I think fits the bill.

James Parker said...


Hollywood abounds with lights,
But darkness lurks there, too.
Mysteries thrive in shadows,
The Whats, and Hows, and Who.

You see, a long dead actor,
Returns from time to time,
They say he makes his entrance,
When the bells of midnight chime.

Not clothed in human flesh,
He returns in sleek, black plume,
Shades of Edgar Poe,
He reeks impending doom.

But who returns to haunt?
Some say Karloff, some say Price,
Lugosi? Maybe Chaney,
The visions aren't so nice.

His identity stays secret,
Unknown spirits carry lore,
Only the blackbird seems to know,
Quoth the raven, "Barrymore"

Own words are eventually collective to share through out history. To introduce certain magic in images and works to expand experience. Always an artist, to give it meaning is to live it and bring something back. Love is the passion of it and the reason for carrying on. My story intertwines with yours. Wm Sidmore
