Heart in Battle

Ticking ticking ever waiting to the pace of the empty heart
silent breath
watch your prey
make your move

Drumming out steps keeping tempo with the dark heart
quickening breath
oblivious to others
draw your sword

Pounding and striking to the pulse of the raging heart
ragged breath
spattering blood
the first hit

Crescendo the battle to equal the meter of the shadowed heart
panting breath
dart ahead
one last thrust

Standing still against the rate of the avenging heart
slowing breath
dark victory
against fallen foe

Fleeing fleeing ever running with a marching evil heart
final breath
final stand
against the righteous

First poem in a while, hopefully I’ll write another one over the weekend.
