The Ladies of Horror
Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!
by Ela Lourenco
Born of the very bowels of the Earth,
Woken from my slumber near the molten core
By the death throes of mankind above
I inched my way upwards towards the skies
Patient, though my travels lasted a millenia
I am one, I am many – a thousand beings
In one mind.
I rose up summoned by a pain so deep
The very Earth echoed its cries
I broke out of the dank soil
To find… nothing
Nothing but a concrete jungle
Silence blanketed the Earth
Not a creature remained
And now the only life
