PRAEDANDUM

A Poem by TerryDarcy-Ryan akaSheerTerror
"

" hunted "

"

lust to hunt

the pounce of need

poses a tiger unseen

bloodthirsty crouching mean 

affliction follows the hunted's dismay

moving about dwelling in debris 

overture plays the weak prey

a fragile cry confesses stray

redeems a frailty near and dear

smothered hunger to besiege 

the last glance flickers to bleed

laid to rest with battered wings 

swallowing earth to flourish seed 

fathom sounds weeping for spring 

claw, dig and grasp to breathe 

fight for the surface of light 

live to die savage to be

place to seethe 




Terry D’Arcy-Ryan
