LOST SOLDIER'S LOVER

                                        THE  LOST SOLDIER'S LOVER

                  Her heart plays bellows to heighten nightly fires of solitude,

                  Playful flames of terror taunt a dancing flicker of despair

                  New dawn's burning pain --kindling knowledge of love's certain loss.

                  What false anticipation promises the quiet cool of healing?

                  Why does a fragile unscorched hope cling desperately

                  When her only healing balm lay ever hidden---
 
                      Blown astray as ashes in a far and thankless land?

    Kathy, thanks for your specific comments...it is good to hear which words 'connect' with readers...i love words, and do my best to offer them to a reader as i see them....no matter what the topic, there is always beauty in ugliness.....and vice versa....
