The Fallen Perish

Posted: November 2, 2017 in Uncategorized

Given what we know I cannot forget our circumstances
We know we are on a rock hurtling around fire at a million miles an hour
Such velocity cannot rightly be comprehended

If you want to be understood you must explain yourself
Gaze turned inward the writer at a loss for words do these thoughts go anywhere?
I shut down my feelings and withheld my understanding

Love? It was as if I had murdered you it was an act of self-defense
A primal urge to protect my heart bloody wounds attract predators
And we know with certainty the fallen perish
