Poetry

Testament

There’s blood covering my hands, a testament to the trials I’ve endured. From all the loss, the pain, the feeling that there was no escape from hell, to those moments that made my heart skip a beat, my skin shiver with anticipation, and my lips itch for that kiss, I’ve lived. And these crimson drops uncover each moment — every dream, triumph, and failure — as they bleed out on the page.

  1. Hi, I just took a look at some of your poetry, and a little of your story. I think I understand why you liked my work,’the fool’. Though one can never understand another’s mind. You have my admiration if that’s acceptable? kind thoughts, tony

      1. Especially for writers, if you stick with one thing forever, you can’t grow. By challenging yourself to go deeper, or do something different, it expands your knowledge base and can have (hopefully) a positive influence on your writing overall. 😊
