[YC 199 New Eden Capsuleer's Writing Contest] Reflections

(Miyoshi Akachi) #1


I see myself, the man of flesh
I see the capsuleer

I see my hands
I see drone-like metal extensions

I feel my skin
I feel the coldness of a metal shell

I feel the chill air in my lungs
I feel the burning feeling of decompression

I see the darkness, my eyes closed
I see the flaring light of explosions

I see crystal-clean water
I see the blood of the people I killed forever

I see myself
I see the capsuleer

I see the murderer

I see the immortal

I see the mortal inside

I see me

Just a dream or something more? I don’t know.

I’d like to submit this for the YC 119 New Eden Capsuleer Writing Contest for the Poetry category. Thank you.

A dry piece with good imagery in few words, though I wished you had kept the cadence of see and feel you establish in the beginning.
