Fandango’s Flash Fiction Challenge #4

Here we are with Fandango’s photo challenge:

I am drawn by the light
It calls to me from the darkness,
I am now part of the night
Due to one totally heartless.
I drift along in shadow,
Filter through walls and doors,
A glimpse of flimsy shroud
Ignores barriers of windows and floors.
My footsteps are silent and dusty
Wherever I walk, smell decay,
At my touch water turns rusty,
The colour in your face drains away.
You can see me now I have risen
From the grave you dug, way too shallow,
Released from that temporary prison
Unblessed, secret, not made hallow.
You will never escape me
I was wronged, and buried alive,
I will hunt you for all eternity
Shred your status for which you thrive.
They will drag you from here screaming,
Lock you up and toss the key,
Claim you mad and only dreaming,
And leave you to your fate, with Me.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
