Poems From His Deployment: Part Three

This is his second tour
Explained away by words that I can’t comprehend
The need to choose his men over me
The need to protect those he does not know
His second tour came so quickly
Months passed like swift breezes
blowing through town
Kicking up dried leaves and whispered thoughts
I need him more than breath
I love him more than my life is worth
His second tour is passing by so slowing
Time ticking away endlessly
The face of clocks blurring 
into unfamiliar lines
My heart deployed with him
and now I am left with nothing.
