Redrum

Fleeting breaths,

whispers,

eased through eaves,

whirled through windows,

called my name from beyond the veil.

 

Haunting amber orbs,

cascading citrine tresses

pastel pouting portals

straining tips stain

scarlet bleeding scratches

“Redrum” lines the bathroom wall.

  3. Don’t get the big head, but accept your “Most Improved” trophy. I am your toughest critic and biggest fan. (I would describe myself as your cheerleader, but I’m 71, and the image that puts in my head borders on the obscene. Ha Ha! )

    • Haha as one of my biggest and best critics, I humbly accept your trophy. Trust me, after reading as many books as I have, I’m very far from being big headed. Thank you for taking your time to help this aspiring author grow in his craft. 🙂
