THE SCARLET FLOWER

Standard

By Tom H. Brooks 3

 

Desperation…

 

Darkest

depths

of night

A shadow

darker than shadows

walks into the

neon brightness

of convenience

with cold steel

grasped in his

trembling hands

Screaming

unreasonable demands

Consumed

with anger

and frustration

Explosion

all is still and quiet

for a moment as a

scarlet flower

unfolds slowly

across

a field of white…

Another

senseless life

snuffed out

by a

senseless death

anonymous

Extinguished

like a

dying candle flame.

 

If you let them,

They will take everything…
