~In the Shadow~







In the shadow’s inferno
it quickly burns to ash
a love longed for and lost
in a war of silence
in a battle of words

The lashing and cutting
went to the very bone
slicing the marrow and
bleeding all the
poems and stories of
gentler times of lush red

In the valley of memory
times lingers for one more
moment in tender honor
to what was and never shall be
for the Phoenix cannot rise
from this holocaust of fire
