This is something I wrote about a year back, it is one of my favorites. Took me about 3 days to write the thing.


The Bitter Taste of War

The strike of vengeance
Ever sweet bitters with age
A life finished now

The dragon rests now
Fire from the dark heavens rain
The morning dampens

The lush field darkens
Silence and heaviness set in
A faint roar approaches

The clatter of steel
Agony and despair surface now
The mourning has begun

The flag calmly rests
Screams and echoes heard from beyond
Smoke and fire still remain

The return bittersweet
Cheers are turning into sorrow
Grief relentless that day

The dragon has passed now
Grass reclaims the memories of age
The toll of time ends.

As time continues we become more distant from the truth. The longer we hold ourselves here uncertainty and suffering take root. To correct past mistakes I stand here on the line of sanity and insanity as the course veers yet strengthens. We find and lose, see then hide. For the pain and joy shared continues even as time passes. Continuing forward with our backs facing each other we stand strong and when all else fails we accept our faults for they are truth.
