The Ladies of Horror
Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!
by Ela Lourenco
As you kick in my belly
The sun shines on me
It is just the two of us now
How it was always meant to be
Here in the place that time stood still
Where the outside is not welcome
And dare not come
I have sold my soul to the devil
For you sweet child of mine
I have no regrets
The man who would be your father
Was unworthy and cruel
For you my sweet child
I ripped out his still beating heart
None shall lay a hand on you
It will be only you and me

I like the empowerment here. Nice!
I love this poem – it has such joy now that the horror is over
