Survive To Exist

16 Sep

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.

    “a wondrous detection of life” – very poetic. IMHO-the piece would have more impact without the pictures – they give too much away.

      Thank you. I did debate on the pictures and was on the line about adding them. I think you’re right though.

    I love the title of this piece. Aptly describes the vampire’s life (and the life of some people I’ve met :))

      Thank you. I do believe some people can be vampires draining you emotionally and mentally. 😉

    How sensuous. The lust for blood was beautifully painted. This is very nicely done.
