Photo Challenge # 288 – Triggers

fb_img_1572841219894

There again, the tremors begin

Triggers.

The haunting lyrics running in her head

Take her back

Locked in the room

Bread and water lights out

Darkness surrounding,

The sense of someone sitting near

The need for silence when the noises echoed

The cry for sound when the silence was overwhelming.

It all comes back.

She stands in front

Knowing she’ll never enter again

The horrors of a hotel,

The clang of chains,

The footsteps in the corridor,

The door bursting open

The man with the dog.

Closing the door, he says

“You can check out anytime you want

But you can never leave.” *

 

  • Hotel California – The Eagles.

    Great take on the photo.

  2. Some nasty hotel, that. Methinks *hotel* is more of a euphemism.

    There’s definitely something creepy about that place.
