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


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.


Thank you for your entry! It has been listed on the contest submission Roster!

Deadline for entries is July 31st!

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.
