       It's been a while.. just some odd flitting thought. Enjoy

    It's amazing;
    ...This potion.
    A complex soup of mingled emotions.

    Like a soldier;
    who's white flag has been stained with blood.
    No end in sight,
    with your surrender covered in red and mud.

    Hacking apart all rationality,
    leaving in it's wake..
    confused casualties.

    Body bags filled with hope,
    and dreams not yet dream't.

    should be "in its wake" --possessive, no apostrophe...

    and "whose white flag" possessive.

      i really like the metaphor here that is sustained in the last three stanzas...

    but i feel the "soldier" idea needs to be introduced in the first stanza...that stanza doesn't read like it fits in with the rest of the piece..like you start out in one direction and then go off in another.

    i would like to see that first stanza used to create a soup metaphor piece...

    just thoughts..

    the last two lines are a kicker.
