Monday Motivations

This week, my Monday motivation takes the form of a picture – and a grisly one to make you sit up, get thinking and write!

knifeLooking at the photo, here’s what came to mind for me:

The Killing

The knife plunges in,

Blood oozes out,

Splashing me, cascading down,

Again I stab, deeper this time,

Unyielding, I go on,

I cannot stop.


My eyes are alive, opening wide,

I remember it all,

What have I done?

I look around me and smile,

Lean back against the sweat-soaked pillow,

Just a vivid dream, a nightmare perhaps.


But sometimes my mother-in-law makes me feel that way.
