! Wars

Rating: 2.7
 


I drift down,
when i listen utterances,
reverberating in my mind,
these are not melodies,
but dances of hunger and sickness,
over the broken crusts of earth,
In downtowns on real grounds.
where sky burns and ashes,
soar in hurricane winds.
where breeze does not mean,
and fires of war rain with blood,
and clouds of dark smokes,
and cannon rumbles shake the hearts,
Where life is deeper than graves,
and death may give it up,
embracing the tragic,
Can man find himself?
with wavering wisdom,
gripping necks with shaking hands,
with suffered tolerance,
In house of fantasies.
with open eyes,
and buried dreams,

'but dances of hunger and sickness' what a description, I totally agree with you. You've made a great use of vivid descriptive language, you managed to visualize the scene for your reader, I strongly felt each anf every word, you've touched my soul, I guess with everything going on around us, we can all relate to your poem, if it's not a real war, then it's mental. Well done, that was perfection
