The Ladies of Horror
Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!

by Kyra Starr

Fluorescent lights illuminate
my pallid translucent flesh
fingers raw from written walls
clawing to pause my descent
but I crave the ultraviolet luster
the echo of my leaden steps
each ragged breath I inhale
of your damp, decaying scent
In your atrocity you complete me
Their grisly horror, our symphony
We perform the role society cast
wearing vibrant costumes but no mask
I heard the warning, the foreshadowing
Your presentiment, a testament
But I’m infatuated, infected
and I cannot trust myself to stop
Yet trembling I hesitate
steadying myself on the banister
feeling the chill of cracked plastic
A second thought forgotten
I take the blame.

About Nina D'Arcangela

Nina D’Arcangela is a quirky horror writer who likes to spin soul rending snippets of despair. She reads anything from splatter matter to dark matter. She's an UrbEx adventurer who suffers from unquenchable wanderlust. She loves to photograph abandoned places, bits of decay and old graveyards. Nina is co-owner of Sirens Call Publications, co-founder of the horror writer's group 'Pen of the Damned', and if that isn't enough, put a check mark in the box next to owner and resident nut-job of Dark Angel Photography.
