The Death of Team Three

April 3, 2019

 The Death of Team Three
Told by the Survivor, Leslie Walden

2nd Place, 2019 Art & Literary Contest

 

As sweat droops and the 
Breathing quickens, the team staggers 
Into position.

 

The weathered bodies 
Clashing and gasping, as wrong 
Calls change their future.

 

All black horizons.
Nothing left, but a silence 
That could shatter glass.

 

Lost in grief of their
Fallen teammates, the team stands
Alone together.

 

Gravity causes
Emotions to flow so strong
An ocean divides.

 

With growing tides ripping 
Some away, the island will 
Never be the same.
