Blood Clings

The blood of my enemies dripped away as the blood of another clings to my bones like skin. As hard as I try there is nothing I can do to get the Lawman’s blood to fall away. Although I can still feel the weight on me and the poison that burns within. The force of Reason could not remove it and Nothing failed to consume it. His blood has a purpose, it does not want me to forget that my choice like his has consequences. I made my way to a river, I will not continue my journey in this state. The Earth anticipating my intentions sent the wind and what could be carried on it to keep me from entering it again. To me it was just a forceful breeze, the things it brought were no match for the weight that presses against me. It is the same lesson as before, there is nothing that it can do to stop me.
