DrowningCheerful on the outside,
yet drowning within.
The wind whips my face,
it's as cold as your heart.
I've been pulled under
by a rip tide of depression.
Every minute, every second
is harder to stay afloat.
A merciless undertow
keeps pulling me slowly...
Down leagues and leagues
to the depths of my weathered soul.
I'm waiting there for you.
Give me your hand
and rescue me from myself.
Tidal WavesI was a fool.
I thought that I mattered.
But I was abandoned by selfish hearts.
They had no need for me.
For too long I have been lost.
Adrift amidst the waves of darkness.
These waves will soon swallow me
if a life-line is not thrown.
I beg, let me trust you.
These tidal waves of hurt and betrayal
constantly ebb away
at what little trust remaining.
Soon to be lost
in a sea of deceit.
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.
