A Soldier's Cry



behind the flame
locked
distant
I stare
blinded 
from a fortress
a distant dream
unreal
without
alone
inevitably trapped
naked 
and bare
a battle cry
calling
pleading
screaming
silently 
aloud
nothing said 
as time marches 
the spiraling minutes 
subdued 
within shadows
muted of color
the door
latched
again
the lonely flame
flicker
