Warrior Princess (Death Comes)

Death stocks but you know not,
Tired to very core still duty calls,
Action afar so fear has dimmed,
Wariness defeated by exhaustion,
Yet this is the faultiness of death,

For death watches, draws nearer,
With slow patience, eyes on you,
Ever alert, awaiting her chances,
Slow motion bringing ere closer,
Still you’re left nascent calm,

The crack din breaks desert sun,
You perceiving nothing but heat,
Silence surroundings is calmest,
First realization is last thought,
Far too late you know your end,

And complete she fades back,
For the hunt must begin again…

Left Behind

Agonizing pain,
This vast emptiness,
Forlorn host now lost,
How do I now to go on,
How do I dare to continue,
Only yesterday future bright,
The whole of tomorrows entice,
Yet today vision now dark and lost,
Where have you journeyed to alone,
Why for am I left here in pensive pain,
Reaching out I find you not,
Ever searching still you’re lost,
Calling and hearing only the silence,
Pleading but no answer to spring forth,
How now do I continue without my best part,
They say to make peace,
Tell me to let memories dim,
Assure me this pain too shall pass,
But I know well their misunderstanding,
They cannot will-not ever know the truth,
Me empty shell left here while she’s gone home,
Why to continue onward all alone?

Lack of Choice

This a relentless storm of falseness,
I fear the trauma laid out before us,
Dread the dark future for ny children,
The few clamp down on the many,
Sharp cutting claws of privileged,
Will we really ever learn to stand,
Recover all what they’ve stolen, 
Existence all fearful bleak disgust,
Ever will we take back what lost,

Shining Soul

As my memories wane and fail,
The vision of your beauty grows,
As I knew the joyous young child,
I can now see a mature loving women,
Imagination fills the greatest gaps of time,
I perceive the happy times, the struggles, family,
Rewarding path of bringing the children to bloom,
Satisfaction at a job well done, life well lived fully,

I envy you my dear old friend…

If it happens that you have read all the way down through this list, then you should be thinking right now… Now of course I could go on listing the rest of humanity’s bloody history, but alas the resources of this site are limited and I’ve preferred to dedicate it to Art, Poetry, Inspiration, and Writing.
