#WritePhoto Skulls And Shadows

September 29, 2017 , , ,

skull sign

skull sign

They looked down on the path with hollow eye sockets

Warning visitors to the woods that not all who enter leave

Some are murdered, skinned and eaten during dinner parties

Others are made into shoes or caps for theater troops

Life in this place must be a precarious race with survival

Assumptions made before entering will warp and strengthen

Turning everyone into either hunter or desperate prey

The shadows cast by the skulls grow long in the afternoon

The darkness grows deeper, the silence is discomforting

The sign is an omen of impending doom from which there is no escape
