We stood there sweating in our armor,
tense and uneasy as we looked across the green.
We knew what was coming,
gone over it a thousand times in our minds
a thousand more by hand.
Muscles itched as the hairs on the back of my neck
twitched in the wind.

A cry, a move, a step
The shuffling of feet and armor
around me as we moved forward.
Forward, screaming
because we had begun an end.

Finals week for me. I feel like I made my own "get pumped" study music.

Carry on without

3rd compo.

Walk along and live life in the same way;
as if the world didn't know that they were gone.
Time that carries life along with it inexorably forward,
perhaps now with a different meaning.

Memories of faces, fragments of voices pushed down,
hushed and smothered in quiet anxiety.
Cold sweat and clenched fists in nervous
apprehension of reminiscence.

The curse of memory.
