I gazed at memories, waning away, and looked up high at fields of gray,
I watched the clouds all flee once more, fleeing from the sight of gore.
Did they see us lying here? Our hands entwined, our thoughts in gear?
I looked to you, but you were gone. My hand fell limp, something wrong.
Something had broken. Something was snapped.
Something deep inside entrapped.
I smiled at your memory and fell deeply into agony.
I doubled over in the rain, I could not understand this pain.
I looked back to summer days.,
To the close-fought war, the coming dawn.
The draft that claimed the people’s ****.
Though I thought he’d come back, had he not returned?
Come home for me, his glory earned?
He was there; I blinked back tears. He grinned and wiped away my fears.
I loved him so, and I should’ve known,
But I could not see beyond this show.
My love, my infatuation. . .
Was only my hallucination.
My... Very... First... Poem... Ever. It went through a lot of edits, and I had to decide whether or not to post it. But here it is!
