The Winners of Week One
Third Place receives 100 TRAIL and 4 STEEM
“Somebody!? Help me!” I cried.
“Where are you going? Everybody’s bleeding!”
I held Everybody in my arms. Warmth slowly left his lifeless body. His blank eyes stared at me. I can feel the burning sensation in my heart. Somebody abandoned me. It crushed my soul.
“You’re gonna be fine!” Nobody said.
I smiled weakly. Tears poured.
I cried so much when Everybody died. I cried my heart out. I cried until I fell asleep. I cried more when I woke up. Somebody should’ve been there with me. Yet, he left.
“Oh! Anybody.” His voice trembled.
Nobody was all I got.
Second Place receives 200 TRAIL and 6 STEEM
My neighbor glanced in my window today
With a whistle he had little to say
You wouldn't happen to have spare coal
Not today I used it to darken me pole
A frown and lines creased his head
Isn't common to weight with lead
Not this one for I'm fishin' for me soul
I have to prepare me dryad fishing pole
Curiosity obvious when he continues to say
Dryad's don't live in water on this day
Aye, and they don't like the average worm
Only a dryad fishing pole makes them squirm
Concealing the pole
He puts on his pants
First Place 1st place receives 400 TRAIL and 10 STEEM
The First Night by @prufarchy
It was incredible, like the entire world and all its colors had been drained from me and polished to a brilliant sheen. I could hear the padding paws of a dog several blocks away, the whispered conversations of lovers in bed in the apartments above.
Just one little bite and two tiny holes in my neck and, for the first time ever, I felt truly alive.
I bent a metal rod with ease. In a single jump I reached a fire escape above me. I felt like a god, lowercase g.
I wanted to bite the world and share this.
Special thanks to @meesterboom for his generous sponsorship of this initiative.
