Failure of ExpectationIn a way this is a relief -
The failure of expectation.
I breathe in, I breathe out.
The weight upon my back is gone.
Infernal confusion now is gone.
I can rest my weary soul.
To the future I now gaze.
A better life, I now seek.
Reality is harsh but
I will be harsher.
The truth is a bitter chill.
Now I can be colder.
My one regret is this
Where my heart withers to a bloodless husk.
At least now, I can move forward.
I wanted to know the Truth.
Now, I do.
In so knowing, I cast aside
My delusional expectation.
I touch to feel so I
Cannot feel you at all anymore.
I touch to love,
So I cannot love anymore.
Is this the final closing of an era?
Is this only the beginning of an eternal end?
The closing of a door,
The loss of self.
Tormenting and unfaithful,
Friendless and faithless,
The hooks are in my soul and mind,
Stripping who I was and am.
Only on a soundless telephone within.
Love, show me how to feel. End my temporary numb.
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.
