The Ladies of Horror
Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!
Kill, Click, Run
by Asena Lourenco
A snap of a photograph,
Draws the eyes of the world to you,
Any secrets that you had,
Will soon reveal the truth,
Mist clouding my mind,
The room much the same,
My judgement not clear,
A corpse by the door frame,
A click of a message,
Inviting the web to join in the game,
An attached photograph,
Shared under my name,
The wind rushed in through the window,
Clearing my humid and hazy head,
As realisation kicked in,
That my mother is now dead.
