In response to secretkeeper.net’s weekly writing prompt #119. The challenge is to use the 5 words given below (or their synonyms ) in a poem or flash fiction.

LOUD|WAR|JUMP|ESCAPE|RIGHT

The loud blast ripped through the calm of the city

deathly agonizing shrieks echoed far

innocent souls in a stupor, numb with fear

to soak in the effects of the gruesome bloodshed

shattered homes, dead smiles, painful cries

nothing seems right, to the frozen mind

the ghastly massacre leaves haunting images

lives, happiness and smiles, comes to a standstill

humanity plunges into an eerily gloomy silence!
