Week 87 Winner

Camera Shy for Dr. Magoo
Bobby says: He really got the theme and turned it into written poetry. Dr Magoo really hit his mark.

There’s blood everywhere. I can see it in your veins, pulsing forward with each beat of your heart.

There’s blood everywhere. I can smell it, the pure red mixing with the filthy air as it arcs out through the would I made in your side.

There’s blood everywhere. I can feel it, hot at first, then cooling as it dries on my clothes, my hands, my face.

There’s blood everywhere. I can hear it, dripping into puddles, pooling around my feet, coating my soles with a trail that I will leave for anyone who wants to follow.

There’s blood everywhere, but I cannot taste it, forced as I am to cry wordlessly into the night with no tongue.
There’s blood everywhere.

I roll over in bed, dripping and cold, clothes engorged with mingled sweat and urine. There’s no blood. There’s no revenge. There’s only my weakness, and the prison I will never escape.

Congratulations THREE Time Winner Dr. Magoo, Tempest, Toni, and Nellie! Don't forget to claim your badges and display them with pride. You certainly earned it! :)
