C.R. Ebowski

Rookie (Living in my reality / Dying in the world)

The Last Night

A dark red liquid drips
Off of my swollen lips
Coming from flesh that tore
Forming a puddle on the floor

Hand prints etched into skin
Bruising my muscle within
Till there is no more a body can take
It is then the bone will break

My legs quiver to gather strength
Supporting my body’s length
I raise my head with all my might
Spitting in his face just for spite

Images fade in and out of the light
Merging memories with tonight
Again I descend to the ground
Forming an eerie resonating sound

A dark red liquid drips
Off of my swollen lips
Coming from flesh that tore
As my lifeless body lies on the floor

    deep hard evocotive and spellbinding.
    difficult to read because it forces one to feel.
    good work as well as all of the latest. (Report) Reply
