The Continuation (Poetry)

Where did we leave off?
When we last left our hero
What peril was she facing
How could we expect
A honestly satisfying conclusion
Her mortal enemy
Why was he nowhere
To be seen?

This is the continuation
Vague and full
Of misdirection
Our hero remains
Unsure if she will prevail
Yet she continues

Is it merely existence
After such defeat
All that was left
To fight for, to dream
Has been all but lost
Then why continue
The thread is not ended

What can be stitched
Together from the scraps
Some knots left to be tied
Only to be unraveled
There is a plot
He continues to plan
A foil that must be crafted

Is there to be
An ultimate battle
Of wits or brawn
Who will be
The proxies
In this fight
Or will it come
To final blows

Is this struggle
Ever truly ended?
As the words survive
The long years
The continuation
Of what could have been
Or might still be
This is the stuff of dreams
