Eternal Darkness

24 Mar

Sweat and blood drip down,
“…over soon…”
Daemons know the pain; they’ll never stop.
Reminiscence smiles, but vision blurs and reality hits me hard
“…love gone…”

Yet I must atone for our sins

The last of trifecta, I poured my heart into it (rather more literally than was asked as you can see 😉 ). This one was really hard as I cut out word by word trying my best to replace them with punctuation.
I saw once that life was like a bus: people get on and off your bus but leave memories; I’m glad we shared some time together and hope to travel with you guys again maybe sometime.
I also want to help trifecta for making me a better writer in the short time I have spent here.
On that note, goodbye, fare well trifecta and all.

      Thank you! I was feeling deep… Double meaning again (deep –> hell) :p

    You certainly did lay it all out there for this one! I like the last line, but it’s a losing endeavor….is there any way to fully atone our sins?

      I hope there is Janna, in this story though it seems impossible… maybe one day the daemons will really leave him alone, deeming him finally worthy of peace 🙂

    Ooof, this is dark indeed! “Reminiscence smiles…” I love this. Wonderful job. And thanks for the bus analogy – that’s a great way to look at it. I’m just hoping many of us will continue to travel the same bus routes. 🙂

      Thank you, unfortunately “I see you smile” didn’t fit with the word limit so I had to find another of depicting it :p glad you liked it!
      I hope so too 🙂

    Dark, sad and powerful. I can see your heartstrings tugged by words!

      Endings are sad, but sometimes forever can be sad too, here the contrast wasn’t happy endings or new beginnings but a sad forever… or maybe I was just sad and that thought came after :/
