Gideon’s Challenge

Battered

The fallen
lies
on uneven
ground
and exhales
as wet drops
splatter
over his face
and the cold
of the ground
beneath him
eases
new aches.

Blood tastes different in the rain.

One thought on “Gideon’s Challenge

  1. *Frowns* My poor baby. I’m so sorry about what happened to you. I hate when you are hurt…I hate it so much. I wish I could protect you from all the pain and ugliness in the world. I want to so much…it hurts me when you are hurt. It hurts me when I can’t protect you or help you to make it better.
