The photograph below is from lauramusikanski @ Morguefile and is the subject for this week’s Fandango’s Flash Fiction Challenge.
For the visually challenged writer, the photo is of a sculpture showing the hands, shoulders, and head of a woman with a frightened expression on her face. Her hair grows straight above her head like the trunk of a tree and branches out with small, humanoids emerging from the blossoms on the branches.
She had been warned that her thoughts could come back to haunt her.
Many said they could read her like a book, and it was no wonder her mind was in constant chaos forever at loggerheads with itself due to her thought processes.
She so wanted to be everyone’s friend, and in so doing would voice conflicting ideas from one person to the next, totally unaware of potential consequences from the outcome.
The migraines started in her late forties, gradually intensifying until she was sure her head would explode. She felt she was possessed by demons and aged quickly, never to see retirement.
From the spirals of her mind sprouted confusion and disarray, the buds of new life twisting and changing as they matured.
Her son had captured her torment perfectly in his statue.
