Blood And Tears - Poem by Vasto Grom

I can still hear them
Their cries and their screams
Echoing throughout the darkness
I can feel the cold of their tears
The warmth of their blood
Why won't they leave me alone?
All I wanted was to be free
Just to be at peace
So why is it now that I can't sleep?
I silenced the voices
I killed the pain
I even ended the nightmare
So why?
Why can't I sleep?
Why won't they be silent?
Even as the dirt settles in on my the metal of my new bed.
I can hear their cries
I can feel their blood on my hands
The lives I have taken
The ones I have left behind
So that I could sleep
And never have to worry again
How could it have gone so wrong?
No peace and quiet
Just blood and tears
