If Wishes Came True

By K.Z. Morano

 

Curdled clouds came… hovering, descending…

ingesting everything in their way.

The world was painted in black, white and gray.

I opened my mouth and out poured a soundless scream

as if we existed in a silent film.

Then people started floating…

Their bodies bloating,

Fat limbs flailing,

Dancing in an eerie pantomime…

Intent on leaving me behind.

I cried after the corpse balloons as they flew towards the ashen sky,

gazing down at me with pupilless eyes.

Their decaying mouths opened and closed in an inaudible song.

Then I remembered my last birthday wish…

For everyone to leave me alone.
