The Legend of isla de las munecas

The Legend of isla de las munecas

South of Mexico City, down the canals of Xochimico,
you’ll find a tiny island with a history you should know.
The isle-de las Munecas–now a tourist destination.
Dedicated to a drowned girl deprived of her salvation.

...

The hanged dolls look menacing, even in the light of day,
in the dark–here’s the lark–they laugh and whisper whilst they play.
Severed limbs, pale porcelain heads, blank eyes stare from the trees.
Fifty years, a kindred soul, placed the dolls there to appease.

...

Legends claim at night they move–open wide their soulless eyes.
They scream, they moan, longing for home–their wailing fills the skies.
The found doll of one young girl–soon the ritual began.
By Don Julian, the caretaker, one truly troubled man.

...

He plucked the doll from waters warm, then nailed it to a tree,
his way of showing the girl respect for islanders to see.
Some claimed old Don was crazy–he'd just made up the whole thing.
Yet none drew near for fear they'd hear those damned dolls start to sing.

...

Friends and family claimed that Don was spurred by unseen forces.
Driven mad by nightmares, guilt–like hordes of wild horses.
Don never forgot–so distraught–he could not take a wife.
His body found right where she'd drowned–where the girl lost her life.

...

Late at night, when the weather’s right and the moon looms bright and full,
the Isle of de las Munecas has a mesmerizing pull.
You’ll hear poor pale dolls wailing 'fore they open up their eyes,
while ghosts of girl and Don still sing sad whispered lullabies.

Thank you very much for reading and commenting on this, Gerard.
You see, I'm just the opposite, lol.
I do amateur paranormal research so I would absolutely love to visit this place.
In fact I have even looked into booking a flight there.
The cost for round trip tickets range anywhere from $162.00 to $398.99, depending on how comfortably one wants to travel.
I dunno, we'll see.
Thanks again!

I was involved in that paranormal stuff before, its very dangerous to the untrained mind, I lost my mind a couple of times and ended up taking time off work to see a psychiatrist. I decided when my daughter was born to finish up dealing with the dead. Be aware my friend, keep a steady mind.

It's a very sad story, Sparrowsong.
I find it odd that a girl that young would be able to make her way all the way out to that out-of-the-way island all on her own. But no one really knows why she was there to begin with.
I just hope she's found peace.
Thanks again for reading.
Pleasant screams!

Thank you, Lucy.
Believe it or not, I wanna go to this island too!
I went as far as looking up air fare, round-trip ticket prices.
They ranged from $368.00 to $685.00, depending on how comfortably you want to travel.
As an amateur paranormal investigator I would hope to be able to take all of my ghost-hunting equipment to see just what I might come up with. I have a feeling I'd get some interesting stuff.
Thanks so much again for reading.
Pleasant screams!

OMG!!!! I’m sooooo interrelated in the paranormal too!! I’m a sensitive, see ghosts, hear them, I do the pendulum and cards!! At times I go to bed and wake to have them standing around my bed. Had so many things happen but still scares the crap outta me. If you get any videos or sounds and send them to me I will be able to tell you if there’s anything on it. Sometimes there’s sounds and voices that others cannot hear. Might make me sound like a weirdo but it’s gift. 😇

Oh, I've gotten lots of sounds on my EVP recorder and spirit box, Lucy.
Babies crying, incorporeal screams and whispering.
The most horrifying was a recent live exorcism I attended.
Truly frightening.
I used to be terrified by some of these things.
But, not anymore.
I don't tell many this but I too am what's known as a sensitive.
My family has me do all of their tarot card readings.
I know, strange hobby for a man, right?
But hey, I didn't choose the hobby. It was more like the hobby chose me.
