The Ladies of Horror
Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!

003_FEB_LOHCircus of Pain
by A.F. Stewart

We are here forever.
The cycle eternal, caught in a perpetual loop of fire and death. See the acrobats burn, see the clowns choke on their own blood, see the jugglers fall to the rain of bullets. Hear our nightmare screams echo across time. We are ghosts imprinted on the fabric of reality by the horror of what we became. We stand in the spotlight, the centre ring dripping our blood, our gaping wounds on display for your amusement.
Life stolen, humanity shredded, all we have left is pain.
You did this to us, you with your morality and your righteous ways. You came with your guns and your fire. To destroy, to erase what you didn’t understand. What you judged. The reverberation of your intolerance cycles with us, a resonance of your ancestors, of your legacy.
From beyond death, we endure.
Now we will judge.
And you will join us here in hell.

  1. Great interpretation of the prompt – loved the circus analogy – so visual, so creepy.
