Email Poem | Today's Poetry

 Enemy At The Gate
From gate we peer that spirals high
With breath vapor through bars our sighs
Display etching the cold night sky
A silhouette of love denied

From this place we make base camp
Our strategy, relight the lamp
That signals one that we are here
Waiting for her to reappear

Her perch a tower where she does peer
From window small wonder we fear
She does not see we've come to claim
What once was mine, now his how vain

The dark Knight keeps her like a bird
In gilded cage unseen, unheard
Where seek we will the key to turn
To free her heart that also yearns

Yearns for change from where she's kept
To be rescued from all she's wept
The price we'd pay if just to see
Our life we'd give to set her free

So wait we do beyond these gates
To gamble with the winds of fate
For she is what remains to be
The best we've kept inside of me
