Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!

No Escape
by A.F. Stewart

“There’s a strange beauty here, my sweets.” Pausing in his journey, his voice echoed into the desert. His companions, two crows, settled to rest on a dead tree and a dusty rock. “Look at it. Just a rusted truck, another carcass mired in this cracked, hard-packed dirt, but see how the moon reflects off its metal. So pretty.”
He smiled. “Where were they heading, I wonder? Hoping to make it to the last city? Or simply fleeing blindly, trying to outrun their fate?” He looked out at the horizon, seeing the faint outline of a domed city in the distance. “They were so close. I wonder if they made it on foot?”
He moved closer to the truck, placing a hand on it. “It doesn’t matter though, does it, my sweets?” He rubbed a finger over the metal and the truck crumbled to metallic dust under his touch. “They can run until the end of time and I will still find them.” He started walking again, back on his path to the outlying city. “I will find all of them.”

More from A.F. Stewart:

Horror Haiku Pas de Deux

In the shadows—voices.
Calling, screaming, moaning.
Countless tongues telling tales…
of Hell
of Monsters
and Unnatural Things

Come chase the dark words, fall into the spell of terror and sit with the poetic weaver as you watch the world burn. Horror Haiku Pas de Deux is a volume of poetry mixing horror with haiku and verse to chill your bones.
Poetic beauty lives forever with the undead.

Available on Amazon!
