Halloween Creative Copy Challenge #359

The challenge words are in bold.

================

The earth gaped in silent horror as the crew began to excavate the remains. An act as abhorrent as the capital request that put them there.

What terror lurked beneath nature’s wrap? Dividing death from life, soul from flesh. Filed in a wooden box.

How dare they presume all was safe, here in the darkening gloom. Fog snaked a sinuous path over tombstone and grass. Creeping ever closer. Creating an eerie response to the clang of shovel striking stone.

Silently it circled its gray tentacles around the legs of human form. Rooting its deepening hold into the bowels of the unknown, it released its force to capture its prey.

Maniacal laughter smothered screams of despair as it dragged body and soul to the depth of hell with doomed resignation. Just as silently, the fog slipped away as a late harvest moon extinguished the light on Halloween past.

The Sticky Fingers of Guilt

September 18, 2014

Guilt. That burrowing, rooted grasp on your soul. Growing up Catholic, I remember debates with my Jewish friends on who held more guilt − the Jews or Catholics. As if either of us has the exclusive rights on guilt. Over the years, I’ve been able to loosen the hold of the sticky fingers of guilt. I no […]
