Ares' Gift

Ares' Gift

A Poem by Lisa

Dreams fade
in the light of day.
Life rolls in
and tallies up your sins.
Fate turns ‘round
to lay Her cards down
(Again)

Light fades away
Ares comes to collect his pay.
Coal eyes glimmer
with brilliant shimmering sparks.
He'll go away
if you give him what he wants.
(For a while.)

Empty & Dark
Light & Listless
One last ounce of gold
drops into a black gloved hand.
One more piece of her soul
traded in on the whispered promise of a hero.

Grins & Glimmers
Victory & Vice
Night descends
soft wishful dreams begin again.

A powerful poem. Written with a softness of the pen I really likes. The flow of words were beautiful and perfect. The poem was a pleasure to be able to read.
