Attrition

 

Let lifeblood
simmer
let life spirit
congeal
 
We have been
unlearnt
learnt not
to feel

 
Whence the world
grows dimmer
and we know not
how to heal
 
*
 
The love force
still rises
in wan mute
appeal
 
As life force
reprises
gone past
its weal
 
‘Tis a farewell
to hope
the spirit
now must seal
 
*
 
Even the gods
will not relent
though I bow
scrape and kneel
 
So summer flags
to fall
and I must take
to heel
