Vultures Circling

Posted on Aug 23, 2014



Picture courtesy of

Almost a decade ago she
made a mistake
One that bred many
other heartache’s
And now she sits in
her home
Struggling daily on
bread alone

She tries to keep the
vultures away
But they’re determined to
have their day
These creatures who prey
on the weak
It’s more than soul and
spirit they so seek

They circle around her
As if sensing something
Readying themselves for
the kill
They never really sate
their fill

She won’t open letters
Doesn’t want to tempt fate
knocking at her door
She just wants it all
to go away
But these carrion enjoy
their malicious play

She will fight
For that’s all she
can do
