Where the Ghosts Lie

by A.F. Stewart

They laid us to rest with tears and false words, with whispers of tragedy and illness. They gathered around our tombs, suspecting what he had done, but too afraid to speak. They cast sidelong glances at him, but offered nothing but condolences. How sad they were, at the loss of his wife and child, how they comforted the grieving husband and father.
Ignoring his true nature. Discounting his murderous ways. Pretending we weren’t poisoned and he discarded his family as if we were broken glass to be swept away.
They left us alone with a monster. But we are not alone anymore.
The others are here. Victims of violence, ghosts of hatred. Our anger grows, can you feel it? Can you feel the shame in your gut? The whispers in your ear? See our shadows in the mirror?
We are rising.
We are coming.

    Perfect for a shortie, conjuring substance from the atmospheric nature of the picture and marrying them in a poignantly sinister manner!

  2. Inkstress Zee aka Kendra Hale says:
