The Death’s Feast

A thin streak of tears washed a line of ash and soot off his face exposing his real skin

The stench of blood, burnt flesh and death pinned him down to the bitter reality

He pushed and crawled and dragged himself away from the pile of lifeless soldiers

The gunshots and cries of human souls filled the air and his heart like a bitter scar

Time flew with the poor souls, a feast awaiting Death

The battle came to an end, they have won, they announced

He walked away with guilt and remorse, he had lost the count of the souls he had doused

He walked away, his own soul long lost by the horrors he had caused and endured

He walked away with questions that will never be answered; Where is peace? Where is humanity?

He walked away with a wish that will never be fulfilled; a world that doesn’t know war.

  1. hi yuvi! that’s a strong one. I am writing a series of posts on war too but this is a totally different style of portraying the horrors; realistic while mine is more art based. it’s a strong read definitely

  2. It’s an horror-filled scene! The bloods would continue to speak, and there would never be true peace. Dialogue is the word, instead of war! Thanks for writing a very powerful poem.
