The StainThe Stain
By Morgan Boes
I can't get out. The door is in the living room, and that's boarded up. I've tried to seal the doors as best I could, but I can hear it in there. It's shuffling around, spreading its vile presence through my apartment till I have nowhere else to go. I panicked, and in a moment of terrified stupidity, I've left myself with no escape route. I can hear it scraping those arms across my floor, feeling its way around until it can find a weakness. The wound in my thigh hurts terribly, there is a red streak coming under the door from where I pulled myself out of the room. My leg is going numb.
I should probably go back and start at the beginning. You, dear reader, you must know this legacy, for I am in the last hour of my life. You must know that I have found what lurks in the dark corners of the Earth.
It begins two months ago. I'm young and restless, and in my insatiable desire to be a writer, I must find a sanctum where I can do my work. It's my time to show
mechanici want to kiss every aching wound you have,
bandage your heart every time it bleeds,
and patch up your mind over and over
because not a single tear deserves to fall
from your brandy-drenched eyes
but this dripping heart of mine can only feel
and the healing honey words it flames get caught
in the back of my throat and on the roof of my mouth
so i only have these passionate guttural cries
to tell you that i care all too much
and in order to fix you up again,
i would need to tear myself to tatters
and trade all of my working parts
for your leftover, fading pieces
but i just haven’t figured out how.
