The Ladies of Horror
Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!
by Ela Lourenco
Where once there were halls of gleaming light,
Teeming with the bustle of people all around
Now there is a void, an endless night
Where not a creature makes a sound
Rusty train tracks long weathered from disuse
Paint peeling walls now fading away
A hollow building forgotten and abused
Once cosy and bright pictures now morphed into grey
A once fabled meeting place, a crossroads
Start of many a wondrous adventure
But the passengers are now all gone
The sickness came and bled them dry
A place which was once the starting point of dreams
Is now derelict, abandoned and forlorn.
