Blood Into Ink #MeToo Writing Contest Honorable Mention: Mr. Blog/Going Back

Going Back.png

feeling no fear, I descend those

Stairs.

 

wearing the Wooden Steps thinner than 21 years ago

with the weight of my mission.

 

creaking, stepping, as the Cave of Crime

swallows my view.

 

the Guns, swaddled in dust, draped in webs of years disappeared

remain impeccably centered

one on each of the wicked Walls.

 

the Clock, red-eyed and glaring

reminding me of the time – 11:06 –

I was once paralyzed with fear.

 

and that Bed

that Fucking Bed

clothes and dignity stripped There

as my body and soul were

Penis Pierced.

 

It Lives Here.

 

But I’m Back.

 

glancing about this Room – just a Room – of nothing

I seize It

breathe cascades of It in

and tuck It in the crevices of My Heart.

 

It is now mine and

I’m Taking It Back.


Mr. Blog sleeps in a bed, has a dog, loves the ocean, the #22, the color blue, and learning new things. She lives in the Midwest area of the United States. Currently working as a lifeguard at the local YMCA, she’s only saved the life of one child. The irony is, now she’s fighting to save her own because her body decided to create cancer cells instead of normal ones. Mr. Blog figures she’s saved herself from her own mind wanting to die twice so defeating some cancer cells that think they’re bad asses should be a piece of cake.

I refuse to be invisible. I honor my voice. I write because I have to.
