One Step Closer by Crimson Quintessence 2018

This, is not my life!

Pain pounding my uterus, like a jack hammer

Hot, cold flashes

Flush the system

 One step closer to that threshold

Turn down the damn heat

Open the window

 Butterfly position on the bed

Under the fan

One step closer

Open up the blockage!


Where’s the easy button when you need it?

This ain’t no walk in the park

Why is it that men only listen to women after they’ve done something wrong?

One step closer

 Slow down

Have a seat

Tell me your symptoms

Am I dying?

Check her blood pressure

Take some blood

Lose that smile

This is serious

One step closer


When was the last time you called in sick?

When did you admit weakness?

When did you realize you passed the hop and skip and are now on your way to jump?

One step closer

 Do you feel helpless?

Did you do all you could?

What’s left?

 No transference

No escape

I can’t breathe!






Beep; beep; beep



are you awake?

This is not my life

There’s plenty of time left

You are not one step closer to madness or death’s door.


Carpe Diem

Welcome to the Rivers of Grue. My name is Richard Charles Stevens, Keeper of the Crimson Quill, and this is my immortal legacy. In honour of the fallen, from the deepest essence of an English gentleman with the heart of a lion, soul of a poet, and eyes for only truth. While the subject matters herein may be dark, there exists always a light source. Providing voice to the voiceless until I breathe my very last.
