I smiled - A poem inspired by the poem in the movie - The grey.

The Image -

The Poem -

I smiled.

Blood salivating,
In warm trickles,
A mellow taste,
For life’s chaste.

Nails christening,
Each swing crimson.
Those taken red,
Those delivered redder,

I smiled.

Cut lips, waxing blunt.
Wild eyes, waning sharp.
Begotten and forgotten,
Causes and clauses.

Prey and predator,
Praying for the coin tossed.
Heads, he dies,
Tails, he dies.

I smiled.

 Author's note -

I just saw the movie -  The grey and was inspired by the untitled poem that is portrayed in it. The exact lines of the poem are

Once more into the fray
Into the last good fight I'll ever know
Live and die on this day
Live and die on this day.

I wanted to capture the same die hard essence in my own words.
