The Ladies of Horror
Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!
by Ela Lourenco
Weary, barely able to lift my feet
After my years long journey
I practically collapse on the sand
At last, I have arrived
My final destination.
The salt air burns my worn lungs
The golden sky hurts my eyes
Stumps of wood are all that remain
Of the once bustling pier that stood here
There is no bird song,
No one stirs but the gentle breeze.
I am alone
The last one left
And come tomorrow, I too will be gone
For it is the World’s end.
