Poem – Another Pawn (By Chanacee Ruth-Killgore)


Sun falls on parched earth
Scorched remains linger
All about is still… waiting

The clap of thunder is heard
A rumble in the distance
…hope is kindled

An expectant breath catches
…in my chest
But it was a tease, not a promise

The winds change
Once again I am abandoned
Used up

Brittle, thirsting
and alone…

Beneath the shared blue sky
