The Ladies of Horror
Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!
by Asena Lourenco
Streaks of white paint the frame,
Blindingly bright as they state their name,
Infinite black floods into the empty space,
Fighting competitively for first place,
But darkness swallows light when there’s not much left,
A useless fight or ultimate theft,
But here it peeks through a small creek,
Seeping into the black as a small leak,
Knowing it’s an uninvited guest,
It remains quiet and calmly at rest.
