Two men and the flag

I woke up

To two men at my door.

With a flag, folded

And words to console.

 

I knew when I saw them.

The knight was gone.

They asked to come in.

These two men, and the flag.

 

There and then.

Caught up in a gaze

I saw their lips move

But I wasn’t hearing their words

 

A bed for two.

Breakfast going cold

Seconds chased the minutes

Soon it would be a day since…

 

My knees wobbled,

Today was that tragic day

Two men, and the flag

Instead of the love of my life.
