As The Day Breaks - Poem by Eric Elliott

Dusk has gone and day breaks
the waves ebb at the stones under my feet
I look out to sea as the dawns first light
washs over the land and fills the air with warmth
shining the water pushes light from it into the eyes
of the fallen, only then do they see what they have done
and what we have become
the land fills with bodys burned
and for trees now dead I yearn
bloody stones and broken bones
lay on the shore knowing they'll move, nevermore
traped within this paramore
I cant help but feel alone the one I loved now turned to bone
and yet for her I so long...

I saw the world turn to ash, everything blood, bone, and grass
We, all that was left just will NOT last
