The Ladies of Horror
Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!
by Ela Lourenco
Baby pink buds barely in bloom
Pearly white candles in the dimly lit room
Rose petals strewn down the aisle
Beautiful bride walking down with a smile
I watch my mother as she glides past
Trying so hard not to walk too fast
She never even glances my way
I am forgotten on this special day
Forgotten all this last year
Forgotten ever since he is here
He is not who he seems to be
But no one sees it, no one but me
He has tricked them all
His charm has them enthralled
Today’s my last chance, there is no other way
The last chime of the bells will mark his last day…

Moral: include kids, (if any) in your 2nd wedding. If your kid is like this one, tie them up in the basement and cement them in. No worries! Good one!
A great chiller set in a beautiful ceremony – as Marge says, ignore kids at your peril!
