The Ladies of Horror
Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!

Shinigami
by Tawny Kipphorn

An empty husk lies frozen, nothing but a shell of its former self. Now the entity adopts a new visage, one devoid of watchful eyes and a beating heart. The hellacious vortex that once consumed this vessel has given birth to its eternal halcyon. As it observes its reflection, a distorted image manifests itself.
This is the downward spiral of humanity, the lost highway, the road to ruin. This house of flesh has turned to ice, and what is left enclosed has melted down, and the entity delights in the combustion of the cadaverous beings.
A giant scar has gone unnoticed by the sleepers of the world, and an organ steeped in red has gone awry. The blood has been replaced by a black sludge, and the grinding of jagged bones resound throughout as the smell of death permeates the stale air of its existence.
In the darkness it dwells, waiting to feast upon its own. The contagion runs rampant within this place, and should you find yourself face to face with the infectious being, may death consume you and reduce you to ash with haste, and may God have mercy on your fettered soul.
