THE BIDDING-word count 6,605
When apologist thirty-four year old Duncan McPherson is called to Circleville, Ohio, to investigate a series of mysterious bee attacks, he learns from curvaceous thirty-three year old Sheriff Jennifer Poole, that several bodies have been found, with the victims seemingly drained of their youth.
Every decedent had one thing in common, they all attempted to buy the property from bee keeper and Mayan descendant, Jarvis Weaver.
TO THE NEXT CHAPTER
Shadowed by pain, I slowly melt.
Nowhere to go, nothing to do.
Only aggravation and loneliness felt.
My life left empty, with nothing to lose.
Suffocating, I fall into seethe.
Falling as my world crumbles.
I’m left wanting to believe, searching for hope.
Like an acrobat walking an unraveling tight rope.
I call to those I’ve hurt.
Leaving a message ‘remember me.’
I've done things I want to forget.
A obstruction I've tried to avert.
I crawl out of the past,
finding a way at last.
To rise up instead of fall.
Destroying this dreadful brick wall.
See me now, strong and brave.
For I will never be hurt again.
I know I will adhere,
shedding this torment and pain.
The one I see in the mirror,
is someone, special and kind.
I now focus on what I am after,
moving forward, to the next chapter.
