Poetry Corner: Pawns and Knights

No greeting required, no words necessary

Oldest of friends the bitterest of foes

The score in scars for eternity kept


Ebb and flow of battles won, casualties only one

Silent darkness of plain sight, day into night

Peaceful waging our deathly war


Not my pet, nor walking companion

A Ronin silent into my consciousness flows

Once more we come to blows


Perhaps we can earn our rest as old men

Sit together with pawns and knights

Where once we had our mortal fight


That is not today, not for now

Hide our hurts and conceal our pain

Eyes of blood, we meet again
