I saw life extirpated off the face of the Earth.
I saw it burn.
In the flames I saw it scream like a dying animal,
frantically trying to find its way out.
It's fur singing,
at a heat that's unbearable.
Its desperation leaded to glazed over, wistful eyes.
War has had this land in a death grip
for as long as I can recall,
and the numbed cold fingers that grasp it
Will never let go
I saw it crumble in the bureacracy
of a dysfunctional socialistic society
...a communism gone to the dictators.
No one remembers any...
and the few that do-forget.
and it becomes nothing.
Forget the dead
...and there's nothing in heaven nor earth
that can bring back the lost faces and souls.
Some say an idea can
never die, they are fools.
What is the use of an idea if no one is there to execute it?
No one strong enough, no one smart enough.
No one brave enough.
No one alive enough.
Is it still an id
Poetic PsychosisIn thirty seconds, the next shell would fall. Every night was the same, but every night Lorenzo experienced it as if it were the first time. His throat felt swollen; breathing was hard. He glanced around at the others; young men like him who had been shipped out in the name of honour and freedom. There was no honour in this, no freedom. Only death behind your eyelids, and a fear so gutting, that it carved out your innards and left you a hollow husk. Lorenzo tried to breathe, tried to assure himself that he was still whole, still made of flesh. They had lied when they told him he was ready.
Matteo ran towards him, arms out, rifle swinging uselessly at his side. He shouted for him to run, but Lorenzo remained motionless, unable to move as his friend’s warning was lost in the constant blare of gunfire. None of them were ready.
“The cycle is repeating. It is not safe.” The voice was soft and weak, yet it carried over the gunfire and battle cries without impediment.
