The Ladies of Horror
Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!
Lights of Night
by Asena Lourenco
My legs were loose string hanging from my limbs,
As my breath began to slow,
Panting like a dog I ran,
From shining lights of yellow,
My muscles turned to mush,
But somehow, I carried on,
The shrieking sirens at my tail,
Not even close to gone,
I ran on, petrified,
Swearing I had gone insane,
Dread drove through me as I dared to let,
That thought enter my brain,
I started hearing their voices,
Their steps became clear,
Thumping through the woods with might,
Feeling this overwhelming fear,
Swear began to fill my mouth,
The taste anything but good,
I gave up, catching my breath,
Surrounded, knowing I was screwed.
