Ghost of Love Shadows of Fear – Answer to Writer’s Challenge by Genna East
Answer to fellow Hubber Genna East's challenge to write a poem of any kind expressing emotions prompted by the two videos shown in her hub. Both videos are from the movie "Of the Shadow and the Grey."
There is a link to Genna's hub at the bottom and also links to the other wonderful Hubbers who also answered her challenge and published wonderful poems.
Ghost of Love Shadows of Fear
© by Shyron Shenko
He can feel their icy glare
Eyes follow him everywhere
The biting cold cannot compare
To the bone chill of grief and despair
Looking at her picture he read the note
He wrote the day she passed away
Hungry eyes surround him, shadows closing in
He prepares for one last fight to the bitter end
I’m here she whispered,
You’ve not lost me at all ...
Once more into the fray….
Into the last Good fight I’ll ever know.
Live and die on this day…
Live and die on this day…
Note to Genna
Thank you for the challenge, but just like Jodah, I found it hard to cram all the emotions into 80 words.
This was sad (my emotion) but I felt compelled to answer your challenge.
