The Ladies of Horror
Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!

Image_02I Summoned Them
by Alina Măciucă

I drank the light flooding out of the chest,

And gobbled up sapphires, rubies, and emeralds.

They shattered my teeth, and pierced my gums,

I swallowed them whole.


“You shall unearth great treasures,” they said

Upon conjuration. Gleaming, slippery spirits

Expanding and contracting like micro-universes

In and out of the triangle.


I settled into the chest, made myself comfortable.

Light caressed my flesh – warm, delicate, and tender.

It shattered my bones, and pierced my muscles,

And then it drank me.


“You will carry the treasures of the earth within”,

They said before they twirled back into the void.

Contemptuous, whimsical spirits, waiting to unfold

And usurp worlds.
