Survive To Exist

Scents delightful, tantalizing, tempting 

Lead to a wondrous detection of life.

Aphrodisiac twist of lust, hormones, desire

Spin a natural hunter’s instinct.

Absorb, puncture, relief.

Metallic liquid, sliding, oozing, fueling nourishment for existence.

The Rule of Three is a writing principle
that asserts that, in writing,
groups of three have the most impact.
This week’s challenge is to write
33 words using the Rule of Three
somewhere among them.
It is up to you to interpret the rule, just make sure to use exactly 33 words.

The last strains of sunlight lingered in the corners, grasping every available point of refraction.  She slid her fingertips along the glass wondering if this was all there ever was. Or could be.

The last strains of sunlight lingered in the corners, grasping every available point of refraction.  She slid her fingertips along the glass wondering if this was all there ever was. Or could be. She’d spent far too much time draining life’s liquid from human prey to be convinced there wasn’t a piece of the puzzle she was missing. She had an eternity to bring it together.
