Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!

by Asena Lourenco

A single drop, all it could take,
For someone to go out cold,
The internal light flickering in defeat,
Dead bodies growing old,
The steaming turkey with the smooth red wine,
Lay secretly tinted with death,
Awaiting a new victim,
Lips hiding its bloody breath,
One after one, bodies disappeared,
I cannot confirm where to,
Patiently, he waits for prey,
The potion, he continues to brew. 
Blood stains marked the white rug,  
From the bodies sacrificed there,
There was not a clue until one day,
When I saw flesh stuck in his hair.
