The Ladies of Horror
Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!
by Asena Lourenco
Trapped in the pages, losing track of time,
Stuck in a loop of a never-ending rhyme,
The stories chasing me, chapter by chapter,
Seeking to claim their gory ever-after,
Once my friend, become my only foe
I now pray that they leave me alone.
As dusty shelves no longer hold,
A place to run to where I can grow old,
As time I spend, changes me not,
And the world around begins to rot…
But alas something is different here today,
Someone other has been trapped in to play.
