He Watches

He watches
as his face gets older –
of a love…. he never knew
a war, which grew too heavy
a burdened soul
that now grows cold.
He held back
for far too long…..
as he learned
to tame his tongue
and bite his feelings –
until he grew old
without her kiss
a bitter taste of life
which lingers –
till the end.
