The splash of my oar
As I nervously scan the water
I cannot ignore
The laughter of my daughter
As she frolics along the river’s shore
I never should have brought her
I scream and wave in frantic panic
As a suspicious log drifts towards her
Her befuddled confusion drives me manic
“Move! Run! Don’t let this occur!”
Splash! Snap! The most horrific shriek.
She disappears under as I collapse weak
Is this how her life ends?!
I scream out at Death
“Well, that depends;
How long can she hold her breath?”
This is my post for day 2 of the NaPoWriMo challenge. Our prompt was to write something that had an open ending and ended in a question? It’s a bit dark but ayyy when you get an idea, roll with it.
