The Ladies of Horror
Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!
Between Light and Shadows
by Suzanne Madron
Interspersed with a screaming arrhythmic beep
A polygraph of birth
The silent child blue and staring judgement
The blue baby glared, stubborn
“Breathe. Don’t make this all for nothing.”
The sound of sucking air into virgin lungs a symphony of life
The allure of sleep on the fringes
Doctors and nurses yelling as the room darkened
And the red spilled onto the floor
It’s a boy.

More from Suzanne Madron:
The house across the street seems to go on the market every few months, but this time nothing about the sale is normal, including the new owners. No sooner has the for sale sign come down and the neighborhood is thrown into a Lovecraftian nightmare and the only way to find out is to attend the house warming party.
