Sometimes truth is stranger than fiction. For the Rising Stars Shining Brighter Contest.
As
night falls,
murky dreams
of a wrecked wench
disrupt my peaceful
slumber and I wake up
hearing the shrieks of a girl.
Catching the glimpse of a shadow
I follow it and see a gory
gal with her red eyes glowering at me.
Transfixed I mumble, pleading her not to
kill me and let me go when a hoarse,
raspy voice stops me and reveals
a secret of betrayal
by a man whom she loved.
Startled, I look at
my husband with
disbelief
and I
cry.
