War Leeches

Metallic clashes sound

Raging war knows no bound

Fires crackle and roar

Death has opened his door

Homes reduced to rubble

Survival is struggle.

 

Roads stop leading to Rome

Poison lies in sea foam

Balances have now tipped

Nightingales are tight-lipped.

 

When spark of war is born

Red brides become forlorn

Belly swollen with child

Eyes awake, puffed and wild

They await husbands brave

To quench the love they crave.

A Never Ending Midnight

(A/N I hope this is decent. BTW this one’s a song! With an actual tune and everything LOL)

Verse 1

Scarlet taints

Toothy grins

On sunny faces

As gums give way

And begin to bleed

 

Hollow eyes

That once laughed

Now only stare back

Accusing you

Of lies and deceit.

 

 

Chorus

Now mornings are filled with nightmares

Tender hands, are full of grime

The golden past lies forgotten

The present is barren and bleak

A never ending midnight.

 

 

Verse 2

The world was once

A smiling face

But now it’s ailing

Burdened with

Unhappiness

 

Children work

They toil away

Away from their games

And all their dreams

Have been snatched away
