The Daily Prompt – Surreal.

I alighted from the car feeling devastated

It was a gruelling seven hours drive from the city

The whole compound looked doleful

The gloomy atmosphere was palpable 

The sorrowful faces that greeted my entrance

The dejected look on Mama’s tired face

The eerie silence that echoed when I opened the black door into the big room

Surged my adrenaline as I began to palpitate with terror

On the gigantic bed lay nothing but the pillows that rested his brainy head

I leaned on the side of the bed rails overpowered by sadness

A surreal mixture of pain and fear tugged at me as I drown myself in tears

Wading through the shocking reality that he has finally succumbed to the grim reaper



Submitted for the Daily Prompt – Surreal.

Peace and Love!
