THE HUNTER

THE HUNTER

A Poem by TerryDarcy-Ryan akaSheerTerror
"

"pretty as a picture"

"

pretty as a picture

he holds her secure
in the palm of his hand
the force of a gesture
devours every breathe
a relentless caress
forever, is one last kiss
a tiny red light, a float in the night
shadows outline it's conductor
relished in a smoke delight
the hunter's stance
leans with a framed intent
a stalker relents
crouching silent
this is clear
as a whisper in the ear
the hunter is precisely near
thrilled in every utter of the struggle
a cascade of links unravel
distant cries fall
a clatter of metal
pretty as a picture
he holds her secure
in the palm of his hand
the force of a gesture
devours every breathe
a relentless caress
forever, is one last kiss
Terry D'Arcy-Ryan
