A Beast I Knew

October 6, 2017

PROMPT: Slow Seeing

The deep- throaty growl could be heard in the distance as a mighty roar broke through the skyline.
I wasn't prepared for the claws that dug through the watery sky and pushed the surrounding clouds from its presense.
I heard rather than saw as the belly of the beast make its way over the city, placing a blanket over the surroundings.
The ground shook as its embodiment stepped closer and closer to my house.
I wasn't ready as the smoke engulfed me and unfurled itself around my home.
My breath shortened, and my vision grew clouded as if mimicking the world i lived in.
The last thing i heard was the broken shrieks as the beast died, and just as I took my last breath, he took his.
