“The Morning After Was Filled With Bone” by Stephanie M. Wytovich



“The Morning After Was Filled With Bone” by Stephanie M. Wytovich

This story was published in “Gutted: Beautiful Horror Stories” anthology edited by Doug Murano and D. Alexander Ward.
“With them, went my lips, tired from too many months of promised love, of forgotten kisses; they crawled off my face like the worms I hoped would soon eat your body, like the maggots that bred inside your mouth, that fucked on the top of your tongue.”

That about sums up this story.  A woman looks at herself, and does some deep soul searching.  What she finds inside is black and ugly.  She doesn’t like what she sees.  The foulest of foul and dirtiest of dirty.  She feels horrible for all the things that have happened to her through her life.  But, in the end, she sees herself for what she is no matter the things she has done.
