I write what I feel…


Under the Weight of a Leaden Sky

Post No 791


Under the Weight of a Leaden Sky


Greys, graze,

Colours erase,

Faceless figures, nameless numbers,

Making sense of the senseless.


Humanity wounded,

Cut to the core, edges raw,

Someone’s baby,

Somebody’s child.


Chain linked, slashed wide,

Mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers,

Weeping tears,

Stilling fears.


Gap-toothed abscess marred;

History’s face is scarred.
