Women In Shadows

Shadowy images
waiting in twilight
clinging to the night
bodies in a shroud
sniffing wintry storms

Women awaiting
the hangman’s blow
the soldier’s return
the hoarse laughter
empty eyes waiting
rinsed of tears
wrung of any fulfillment

Wasted years
festering
cringing
waiting
till the flood waters
overwhelm
