The Ladies of Horror
Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!
by Asena Lourenco
The crisp breeze whispered menacingly in her ear,
As the blue ringlets curled into the shore,
The flicker of a hundred flashes,
Seemed to be grow to be more,
Hollers and screams drowned out the seagulls
That were battling to be heard,
But soon it seemed that all came to a stop,
At the mention of a single word,
The sing-song melody of the neighbouring sea,
Seemed to also halt in shock,
As children stopped their games and play,
That the teenagers stood and mocked,
A trickle of unfamiliar liquid,
Appeared at the foot of the sea’s unwelcome door,
As the red pigment of her swimsuit,
Became a deep crimson that she wore.
