Surreal Atrocities

A Life Once Lost

the damage has been done

listen to the cries of turmoil

as the day continues to rain

you can hear the vocal violence

silence the crowd

words fall short of sound

as the loudest of men

becom speechless

lack of breath

is what swept me away

as i wallow

helpless in this surreal atrocity

with night approaching

we all become vulnerable

everything seems to move slower

as time drifts apathetically

to great the dawn

as the new day begins

the effort to live becomes none
