Redoubt…

 

I built a wall of fire
around the empty space you left

at night, white-knuckled
I sit here, gripping my blade

knees to chest
heart keeps beat to an agonizing song

I listen to the howling from beyond the flames

I shiver as it cuts through my heart

My hands are scorched
My lips are dry
My feet are blistered

I will not give up this ground
