Love Lost - Poem by Mai Venn

Swiftly they took over

As the victims fell,

This was to be a fun night,

But became a living hell.

The hall it was crowded

With the spirited and young,

They were launching out in life,

Their time had just begun.

It was to be a good night

As the rock band played,

Merciless gunmen invaded,

The young, they were slain.

There’s no excuse for massacre,

No matter who they are,

Innocent and young people

Who came from wide and far.

Such loss is so very painful

On loved ones as they grieve,

The sorrow forever lingers

For lives never again retrieved.

    dear Mai,

    Your poem will be published in our ebook ''POETRY AGAINST TERROR'', but being it a free ebook (when published at Smashwords) , there is no problem with posting it here.

    This is really such a sad ink on the Paris massacre. We are with families and friends of people who lost their lives. Nice. (Report) Reply
