The Bloody River

We’re fighting a war that can’t be won.

Taming a monster that can’t be tamed.

The bloody river taints the battlefield,

As the inky sky rains pain.

Our hands are smeared scarlet,

And the lifeless bodies are stirring awake.

The echo of the gunshots is unfading,

And the stab wounds don’t seem to heal.

They’re walking towards us, can you see?

They’re asking us how we feel.

Haunting our days and nights with their last words,

Dragging our perishing souls to their world.

They tear our hearts and break our bones,

Asking us if what we did was right.

In winning the battle,

We’ve lost this fight

Of guiding our spirits

On a path of light.

  1. “In the avenue of the hazy ,
    My Madame marks a gaze,
    In the loose wind that calms the parts,
    My Madame is still is so ablaze,
    In the gates of darkness
    Where everything lies so pale,
    My Madame heaves of the harth
    To enlighten the charming rain ,
    Every word of her is like a dance in the moonbane,
    Like this poetry of my Madame
    traps me in
    The emotions of beauty and solace 😄😃😄😊. ”
    THIS WAS SO BEAUTIFUL MADAME 😄😃
