tears D,:I've been forgotten by a friend
Scolded by a stern parent
Disappointed by a bad grade
It doesn't matter what the loss, but I'm crying
Weeping, sobbing, bawling until I die of dehydration
It just keeps on coming
I'm just not getting happy
My sleeve is wet
The tissue box is empty
My eyes are glassy
I'm not even that miserable
But I cry more
Till my sockets are swollen
My eyes are bloodshot
If I wasn't deplorable before, I am now
A series of unanswerable "whys" go through my mind
Why, why, why, what am I doing?
It's not until you see me crying
The tear marks streaking down my cheek in lines
And I'm gathered up in your embrace
And held against your chest so I can hear your heart
That I start thinking
"Maybe crying's not so bad."
And I forget why I was upset in the 1st place.
Poetic PsychosisIn thirty seconds, the next shell would fall. Every night was the same, but every night Lorenzo experienced it as if it were the first time. His throat felt swollen; breathing was hard. He glanced around at the others; young men like him who had been shipped out in the name of honour and freedom. There was no honour in this, no freedom. Only death behind your eyelids, and a fear so gutting, that it carved out your innards and left you a hollow husk. Lorenzo tried to breathe, tried to assure himself that he was still whole, still made of flesh. They had lied when they told him he was ready.
Matteo ran towards him, arms out, rifle swinging uselessly at his side. He shouted for him to run, but Lorenzo remained motionless, unable to move as his friend’s warning was lost in the constant blare of gunfire. None of them were ready.
“The cycle is repeating. It is not safe.” The voice was soft and weak, yet it carried over the gunfire and battle cries without impediment.
