The Ladies of Horror
Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!
Alive but Alone
by Asena Lourenco
My body trembled, my ankles giving way,
My bare knees hit the dirt, the moon marking the end of the day,
My screams became silent, with the thundering silence of the room.
As sinister skeletons fell one by one, into their tombs,
My sweaty palms stuck to my face, as my tears dripped out from my eyes,
An unfamiliar warm gust of wind, circled my body in disguise,
As I pried my fingers from my feeble face,
And time begin to stand still in its place,
I laid my quivering body down on the stone,
And all of a sudden, I was no longer alone.
