The Crimson River This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
   The malice

of the crime

was too

much to bear.

I never asked

why nor do

I think that

I will ever dare.

The Blood

poured from

his wounds,

it made

me shudder

and shiver.

The blood

collected

on the ground

and formed a

crimson river.

The man

had dreams

and hopes

but those

have gone

to wither.

The corpse lay

gripping the

knife which

killed him;

a handled

metallic sliver.
