Alarm by Wendy Janes
The insistent stab of the alarm drags me from sleep.
I smack my fingers against the off button.
It can’t be morning already.
Ahead, another long day at the office.
I peer into an inky void.
Skin, sweaty, warm.
Fumbling for the lamp, I click it on.
Darkness remains, heavy.
Skin chills, gooseflesh.
Gasping for air, fighting mounting panic, I reach for my glasses.
The gloom doesn’t lift.
With a sickening thud, I know it never will.
Annihilation by Yolanda Renee
We watched the last sunrise.
Colors of scarlet, cobalt, cherry, yellow gold, violet, and orange filled the horizon, but in one spot, a pure white blinding light rose.
We shielded our eyes and waited for the impact.
His arms around me, I didn’t cry.
There’s no reason for tears, now.
We watched for as long as we could then closed our eyes and waited. Would death truly be the end?
The words I love you would be our last.
