WIP: Murder WeaponDid you know that the United States has 44.42 murders each day on average? Just in 2017, 405,000 people died via homicide. While guns, especially automatics, are the most used weapons of murder in the United States, there is just something about the knife that makes things more…personal. The fact one can get up close to their victims as they are stabbed, the blood flowing from the newly opened wounds, see the life in their eyes leave as they die. All that blood, all the violence, all that anger must go somewhere, must leave an imprint, right? Not just on those involved, the families who lost loved ones in such violent acts, murderer, and victim, but on the inanimate? Traces of blood, rage, and violence left behind, staining the blades forever. What were to happen if, from all that blood, all that rage, and all that violence, came…life?It is the police’s sworn duty to collect vital pieces of evidence to bring the violent offenders to justice. It is no different in the Murphy Count Sheriff's Department, where hundreds of crucial pieces of evidence are stored. Another day another dollar, as they say. Small-town police go into work not quite knowing what to expect but for the more experienced, things become routine, even the grotesque. Deputy Bill Anderson had just returned from the scene of yet another grizzly murder. For the faint of heart, the scene where a husband butchered his wife and her lover in a blind, envious rage would be stomach-churning, but for old Bill, it was but the usual. Bill held an evidence bag in his hand as he walked down the solitary hall. Within the bag was a large, bloodied kitchen knife with he husband’s bloodied fingerprints all over it. It was a pretty open-and-shut case, as the husband, horrified at what he had done, simply turned himself in. Made Bill’s job a whole lot easier except for the mountain of paperwork coming his way.Damn, they really need to fix those lights. Bill thought to himself, as he walked down the dark hallway with the broken lights; not a single one was working. Damn budget cuts…After what seemed like an eternity, Bill finally made it to the evidence locker. There with his feet propped up on the desk and the latest Stephen King book in his grasp was Ted on the midnight shift. This cheerful older man and friend of Bill’s sat alone under a single light in the evidence locker, ready for his nightly routine of doing absolutely nothing until something happens. Ted looked up from his book, hearing the steps of good ole Bill approaching.“Business or casual?” Ted asked loudly to his old friend.“Business I’m afraid, Ted. Double homicide, the husband went ballistic after finding his wife in bed another man.” Bill explained as he approached the desk and sent the bag with the bloody knife down upon it.Ted rolled his eyes and shook his head before huffing and puffing as he got out of his chair to stand, saying, “Story as old as time. That’s why I’m never getting married.”“Says the man who’s been divorced twice.” Bill joked.“Shut the fuck up, man!”“I’m kidding, I’m kidding, let’s just put this damn thing away already," Bill replied, wanting to get off his shift already, as his shift was supposed to have ended three hours ago, but he had to stay and deal with the homicide at the last minute.“All right you know the drill, sign here," Ted said monotonously, as he handed Bill a clipboard. Bill sighed heavily as he bent over to put his signature down.“The boys from the lab will drop the rest of the shit off later tonight once they’ve collected everything. Lucky for us, the bastard turned himself in so the case is good as solved.” Bill said as he put the pen down and gave the clipboard back.“And I bet you’re happy about that?” Ted asked playfully with a widened smile.“I’m just happy my damn shift is over. See you tomorrow.” Bill replied before walking away back down the long, dark hallway.Ted waved him off and grabbed the bag off the desk. He processed the knife, got a card box, wrote the case number and date upon it before tossing the knife into it with little care. He then took the box into the back to be put away with all the other junk collecting dust. Finding an empty spot, he slid the box into place, dusted his hands, and began to walk away out of the darkened paths between the shelves.“Damn budget cuts…” Ted said as he blindly walked out of the shelves only to suddenly hear something behind him. The sound caused him to pause in place and turned around, the hair on the back of his neck stood on end. The room was silent, Ted couldn’t even hear his own breathing. Maybe he needed to cut down on the King? Once he turned around, he saw the box he just put away on the floor, the knife had fallen out. Ted furrowed his brow in confusion, but simply rolled his eyes as he walked back down between the shelves and picked it all back up in its place. Yet he was sure he put it away properly; how could it fall off the shelf and landed in the middle of the aisle as it did?Ted stood there in confusion, looking at the box once he put it away a second time. “What is it with the people of this town, killing each other with knives?” He asked himself aloud as he rolled his eyes and began to walk away again. This time, Ted didn’t even make it out of the aisle as two more sounds were heard behind him. Ted was caught off guard, even more, this time, as his whole body jolt and he couldn’t help but gasp in fright. He jumped and turned around, and this time it was two boxes on the floor, their contents spewed upon the tile floor. The box he just put away and another box from an older murder case that just so happened to contain a knife, both knives laid upon the floor. Ted furrowed his brow again. He was about to take one step forward, but a new sound overcame all his senses. It was the sound of rattling boxes upon the shelves.The shelves shook violently, the boxes upon them moved on their own. The boxes began to fall one-by-one then two-by-two, but only those containing knives in them. The other boxes stayed perfectly still. As Ted watched the boxes fall more and more, only the knives fell out of them and nothing else. The metallic rattling sound of the blades jittering across the white tile floor joined the frenzied cluster of echoing sounds which filled Ted with sheer terror. The old man had no idea was he was seeing, and ran out of the evidence locker as fast as he could, but the knives…they seemed to be following him ever so slowly like a pack of stalking wolves on the prowl.

And Insomnia Came Tumbling Down by ruilinf And Insomnia Came Tumbling Down :iconruilinf:ruilinf 19 14
I'm bashing on your door
The lights are on
I know you're in there
Why won't you open up to me?
Please, I just want to help
I know it's cold outside
You're worried that if you come out
You'll get frostbite
But I'm there to loan you my coat
So please, I just want to help
You've been hurt to many times
You're hiding in your fortress of cynicism and sarcasm
But I can see you through the window
I can see the real you
Please, I won't judge for being who you really are
:iconhystericalnapoleon:HystericalNapoleon 9 3
Ti amo
In a dark alley
Surrounded by the street lights
You took your turning to the unknown
And stepped into those terrifying nights
With your every step,the echo of your shoes
Your soul trembled with a specific sound
And you were afraid,almost on your knees.
But you saw a red light and turned around
It pulled you in
So deep,so deep
Think,you fool!
But it has already captured you.
Oh so sweet the smell of the sin
You gave every atom of your body
I will love you,beauty is found within.
Yes I will
Run,run before you lose your chance
Before it takes your soul
The sky is getting empty
But the light had other plans
It's hand went through your hair
You're captivated by its hypnotic voice
Breathing heavily,you realize
This was never of your choice
Ti amo
Ages whispered the shouts of one's heart
Give yourself to the red light
For that light is the L.O.V.E.
:icondirtydancerforlife:dirtydancerforlife 12 16
You became a puppet
Nothing more than just a clown
Jumping from here to there
Smiling until your tears make you drown
And you get flashback of the past
That cold November night
When the winds shattered your hopes
It was forbidden to dream of light
You can't help it
You bleed your tears away
The owner of your soul is wanted
Your ship is so far from this bay
You've got nine lives
But you're left with one
Who will take it?
Its killer is unknown
You're a puppet
Nothing more than just a clown
When you cry,
You never leave a sound
:icondirtydancerforlife:dirtydancerforlife 48 39
His chest covered with blood
Her sweat sliding down her face
She was holding his hand
And took him into her embrace
With her arms around him
She cried while he looked into her eyes
He was dying but it was ok
The sun was too far in the skies
"I love you" she said
And he received it with a sigh
Now that he knows it
It is harder to die
Tears fell on his body
And turned into ash
She saw a fire being born
And a reflection in it like a flash
He rose with fire to the heaven
Her embrace became empty and she felt cold
Looking at him fly away she knew he won't leave her
"I love you",once upon a time she told
