Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!

Amis
by Lydia Prime

Plainly,
she dressed,
she spoke.
She seemed
forgettable:
lost name,
blurry face.
There was
nothing
to be done—
to be known.
They say they
would have,
had they seen,
had they heard.
Ignorance hadn’t
Stopped it
spreading further,
Infecting more.
Keeping casualties
from happening.
Bearing witness,
staying silent,
pleases beasts
sometimes.
Not for long,
always more—
she had enough
bad things
for a lifetime.
Stole theirs—
Annihilations
just happen.

About Nina D'Arcangela

Nina D’Arcangela is a quirky horror writer who likes to spin soul rending snippets of despair. She reads anything from splatter matter to dark matter. She's an UrbEx adventurer who suffers from unquenchable wanderlust. She loves to photograph abandoned places, bits of decay and old grave yards. Nina is a co-owner of Sirens Call Publications, a co-founder of the horror writer's group 'Pen of the Damned', and if that isn't enough, put a check mark in the box next to owner and resident nut-job of Dark Angel Photography.
