Poetry: A Pair of Troopers

shotgun fire so i shroud my fear
in comforting the dog who’s cowering

my whispers like motherly words,
as of the warmth as of the womb
as of the silent blanket drawn
over us and under the moon
protecting our heart from the inside out

a world so far away, so very still, so very near
the all too unfamiliar feeling of ghosts now passed
coercing a future into ghastly ferocity

and as you’re freely falling one wonders
when and whether one should pull the rip cord or not

and as time trickles past, you’re reminded
of the very reason that we’re here…

so we would know that
we weren’t alone
