Final Take

It comes
encroaching 
moving faster
roaring
devouring 
acres
forest
lives
no one is protected
no one matters
all for one 
one for all
a thing of the past.
Disheartened
weary
strangled 
brought to knees 
promised warrior
a millennium
walking
waking
destruction
war
sin
all rolled over 
there is nothing
left to see.
A challenge 
not uttered 
taken
more to come
more harm
more destruction
vile men
tasked with protection
raping.
Watching
caravan after caravan
flee
safety 
somewhere
out there
hope is held.
Turn 
one last time
tired
so tired
last stand
last bastion
Last Warrior 
for this life.

Forgotten Tenderness

This poem feeds from Haunted Memory written in response to the Word of the Day Challenge: Independent
 
Cupped
soft hand to cheek
brush thumb
trembling lips
not 
desire
lust
attempt 
keeping tears
in check
shy away
cannot let see
pain felt
you
leaving me.
Watching
leaning
hot face 
cool pane
allowed now
tears falling 
unchecked
soaking your shirt
I stole 
worn now to nothing
your scent 
gone so long
last remembered.
Cold nights
warmth fled
letting go
hard to do.
Done with poise
done without regret
this
I shall always lie to you.
