living on venus

A Story by kmartell

I am living on venus

the sun has burst the atmosphere and the power has gone out.
we struggle with flood and famine. my hands are arthritic and I have lost most of my family.

I dream: IN the dream my fathers exact voice speaks to me from death. He is just as there as he ever was. Life and death: the doors  have disappeared.  MORE DREAMS to come.

MY GREAT AUNT  AND MY GRANDFATHER ARE WEARING THE SAME CLOTHES THEY WERE BURIED IN.
 we meet  and hug.

They will be gone for awhile

Clouds have begun to cover the entire planet.It is warming exponentially.
trees die. animals die. people are found in their houses and suicides are common. you can hear the explosion of guns as you walk down the street.

The sun's flaring eliminated all electricity

here on venus it will become an overheated planet.  one hundred years: desolation. All life gone.

the planet warming even more.  Sorry about that

Ouch....the afterthought "sorry about that" ... a hammer on our collective heads

A beautiful haunting vision of life and the desolation that comes when the world is overcome by fire. Seems almost prophetic.

I see visions sometimes. Of how life will be. I hope I don't live long enough to see it. Or my children either.

so many concerns for the future ... apocalyptic ... i found reading your outline held my interest start to end ... very clear picture of the possible story to come .. not much for science fiction but the ring of present times certainly makes this relevant
