Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!


Tainted Lips  
by Asena Lourenco

Beautiful things often hide the truth,

Deceiving you; too good to be true,

Behind innocent smiles there lays demise,

And evil shines beneath the brightest of eyes,

But a simple treat, what may it hide?

What velvety treats can withold so many lies?

But the pure white frosting was yet tainted with sin,

And the petal swirls held something more sinister within,

Now the creamy confections have fulfilled their task,

Which lips were tainted by your crime, may I ask?

  1. Great response to the prompt and such natural rhyming – I like the question format – encourages the reader to search for the answers in the darker recesses of their minds.
