(16) - Resolution

Poem by James Grengs

He stands outside the window.
His hunter’s senses
Can detect the two beings inside the room.
The metal balcony, cold to the touch,
His only reassurance.
-Fighting the fear inside.-
He is silent, cautious,
Risking no detection.
He hears her voice within.
She speaks quietly;
In her voice.
-His heart is stung,

“Father, are we the same? ”

“Yes. There is no difference-
We are both bound by the hunger.”

Standing on the balcony,
Cool October air moves,
His anger flares hot.
Quickly he suppresses it.
-They can sense human anger.-
He listens further:
They plan his doom,
His eternity.

She loved him, once:
Promised him her all,
Her world,
Her life.
But now,
The promise of love has given way
To the unholy appetite.
Love cannot transcend

Life flashes before his eyes.
Not his-
Her smiles,
Her laughs,
Her joy,
Her warmth,
Her love.

Tears run down the cheeks
Of the Hunter.
Memory brings out

Vengeance burns.
