The Ladies of Horror
Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!

Sept_LOH_Image4Stories Standing Still
by Asena Lourenco

The curls of cobweb that swayed on the wood,
And on that wood, many stories stood,
Being wrapped around the shape of a book,
Thoroughly enjoying their new look,
As the stories jumped from one cover to the next,
Arguing all the time about which one was best,
The time stood still but many different worlds did not,
But now the everyone hasn’t surely forgot,
The time when you did not know which story was in your hand,
And each book was alive, and you were not able to demand,
The time where greed and hunger was not a thing,
The time that you would be happy with anything,
The time when you’d love everything you could hold,
And in a book, you didn’t have to do what you’re told,
So tell me what happened, what happened to this gold?
Who knows, only ones with hearts of cold.
