Of War

All I have is the

Constant pounding of the battlefield

The voices of war

Shells

Blood

Terror

Muted agony

Souls

All I have is the

Vibrations on the walls

The witness of war

Careless

Armless

Joyless

Muted ecstasy

Thirsty

All I have is the

Thick pain in my chest

The epicenter of war

Collapsing

Pumping

Burning

Muted mortality

Uneasy

All I have is the

Restlessness of night

The reflections of war

Bitter

Hazy

Thick

Muted dreams

Spun
