FLASH FICTION FRIDAY: Symphony of Bones | #poetry #shortfiction #flashfiction #freefiction

Symphony of Bones

Pelvis nestled next to my chin

The hollow core of your being ready to resonate

The bow made of tendon and bone slides over the strings

My fingers press the taut strands of your golden hair

Each touch of hair to spine as the bow is drawn over them sings a melody of you

A sadly sweet sound reminiscent of your laugh

I press harder with my fingers

The rigid tendon lapped to your ulna scrapes across silken strands

Eliciting a scream from your violin

A tightness wells, my heart burns with a mix of love, hate

I give myself over to your music, the sweet pain of your former existence overwhelming

More notes join the cadence of pained tones

As instruments of former loves join the chorus

Melodies of love and death mingle, pain and pleasure assault the senses

Harmoniously discordant

Now Liam helps keep the last of the living safe in the subway tunnels, scavenging food by day, hiding by night, all the while haunted about how they lost the world above them. He always believed the dead had help but he could never prove it.

FLASH FICTION FRIDAY: Prey | #freefiction #flashfiction

Shared from Days with the Undead


The blood covered its front, freely running down its throat down over the tattered clothing it now wore. It was indiscriminate, partaking of the flesh from anyone who happened across its path. A lonely, hungry existence at times. But then there was the reward of the kill, that moment where all it saw was red—glorious, satiating red.

A flicker of moment caught its eye, decaying tendons stretching, almost tearing as it turned its head, focusing on the movement.

Fresh meat had come around the corner; it was time to hunt again.

Red overwhelmed it, its prey in its sights.

Shared from Days with the Undead


Sally held her breath, knowing it was just around the corner. She could hear it hitting the wall, soft thumps of decaying flesh sure to leave marks on the painted surface.

If it found her, it would be over. She had nowhere to go in the dead-ended hallway she’d boxed herself into.

They inched around the edge, putrescent green fingers testing what had once contained them. It was coming to get her.

Sally screamed, unable to keep her panic contained. As punishment, the rotten face followed its fingers, the cold milky eyes lighting with hunger at the sight of her.

I’ve been summoned to pronounce sentence on the men who have conned, lied, deceived, stolen or abused my worldly sisters. The time of laughing in the face of justice is over for, at least, one such man. His sins have been exposed and when he attempts to place me on his list of victims, he discovers that he made a fatal error.

An eternity of suffering is nothing compared to the fate I have in mind for him as he realizes there’s no escape from the truth. The question remains: how high a price should be paid to heal the pain he caused?

I’m a native Californian gone ‘wild’, and had the opportunity to travel the globe and discover the world through the eyes of both a Marine Intelligence specialist and a BDSM lifestyler.

FLASH FICTION FRIDAY: Pom-poms | #freefiction #flashfiction

Shared from Days with the Undead


It still held the pom-poms in its undead fingers, the yellow and white strips pocked with darkening blood. It belonged to the once beautiful blonds who’d cheered so loudly for her team—before the opposing team’s quarterback took a chuck out of her throat.

There were only screams after that.

As she fell, the heavily-padded zombie fell with her, consuming her flesh until someone pulled him off. Not that it would matter—she was already dead; the virus now working its way through her system.

It got to its feet, new eyes open to the surrounding world. Then it lunged.
