365 writing challenge day 12

12. Greeting: Write a story or poem that starts with the word “hello”.

Hello– silence said quietly.

I spoke to him secretly,

When suddenly the wind screamed

Everyone I held dear trembles in fear,

The wind howled screams,
Everyone I held dear trembles in fear,

Rustling sounds, deafening noise
My throat felt dry, nothing to quench thirst
I closed my eyes, and held my toys

I wondered, prayed and shivered
Cold and weak, my heart pounded loudly
I knew nothing of hope and yet,

Knew all too well, as the clock ticks
And each one fall to the ground
The loud thudding noise,

Door slammed open, I was found
I gazed into the eyes, a figure came into light
I did not know hope yet, I knew…
Soon I would be gone…

For death had said, pick-a-boo!
