This Weight

Love Song

It’s that loud clanging ring
or ringing clang,
from the weights I didn’t mean to drop when deadlifting,

This aching silence that follows letting you go.

And all eyes turn to me and,
at first,
I’m a little embarrassed.

But, fuck them, this is so much more weight than they could ever lift.

About Me

I like long walks through the Afghan mountains and long drives through the Iraqi nights.

I’ve been a medic in the US Army, a police officer, a Border Patrol Agent, an Air Marshal, and an armoured fighter in the SCA.

I’m a man like you, a creator and a father, a student and a teacher, trying to earn the mantle of Warrior-Poet.
