The Ladies of Horror
Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!
by Lydia Prime
These metal confines couldn’t contain my rage, no certainly not.
I laugh ‘till I cry, and sit inside while bodies begin to rot.
Yes, yes, I’m in here and they’re out there, but my wrath has endless reach.
The end was nigh before they called goodbye; lessons I’m pleased to teach.
This silly gate, those inept fools; my laughter has sealed their fate.
No escape for now – my dreams will be enough to satiate.
Memories blur and centuries pass as I sit inside my cell,
some day, I will be found and unto Earth I will deliver Hell.

More about Lydia Prime:
Lydia grew up in a small, ‘Mayberry,’ sort of town, in New Jersey. She thoroughly enjoys gummy bears and laughing through the darkest depths of life. More often than not, she writes about demons and monsters, however, being a recovering addict tends to turn inner demons into fearsome foes to be fought beyond the constraints of the mind. ‘Sometimes,’ she states, ‘what’s inside, is scarier than anything reality throws at you.’
