Absence

Images haunt her
his face, that once drew her eye
was torn and battered.

The hand that caressed
was blackened with rotten flesh
Its tender strength, gone.

Her body shivers
at the memory of him
the warmth his arms gave.

Then a baby cries
he could have been her hero
but she’ll never know.

Beneath suckled breasts
her heart bleeds in agony
at the love war killed.

One thought on “Absence

What did you think? I'd love to hear from you!
