Description:


some lessons are never learned


soldiers march on



a butterfly is caught in a web of lies
spun incoherently from your bleeding lips
while the sun's children dance twilight
across our closed eyelids
in piles of mud-pies with earthworms grabbing at loose soil
our hands are covered with blood like dirt
from war twisted back into raw
like our emotions on cold nights spent alone
watching flowers bloom into dead petals crusted to the floor
while we fade into silhouettes and nothing more
sleeping with echoes of dreams we never lived out
we dig each other up until the hurt starts to mend
into hope for medication strong enough
to stop the bomb before it drops
on a million innocent lives
merely moments lost in grace
seconds bringing new days to birth
awake with burning scars and empty skies
waiting for the explosion to impend into our open hands
we welcomed this, you know we did

  Very heartfelt and creative, i like how you took your opinion of war and let it come out in a creative way. And while in some poems it doesn't work, it does in this one. Mainly because it lets you paint a picture in your mind of what it would be like on the battlegrounds, and what it would feel like to kill all those innocent people. Good write.

I loved that part, especially, lately I've been on this sillhouttes kick, heh :-)

Great imagery, nice work.
