Suffering scorns your innocence.
Sun seared, hazy mind;
Powerless to fathom the
horrors of your own reality.
Starved body and soul
vanquish your strength.
Eyes sorrow Swollen
stream hopeless pleas,
falling empty to a cold earth.
Lying listless and forgotten
in waste land beneath
shadow of predator wings.
They crave to feast tragedy
from life ravaged flesh.
Hope dwindles as your light fades.
Kissing death, having never tasted life;
Growing cold before feeling love’s warmth.
