Closing In On Me

Blood is streaming from all of my wounds.

Searing pain resonates throughout my body.

I try to speak, only to swallow more blood.

Every single movement, seems to take a lifetime.

People are shouting, yet all I hear is a high pitched ringing.

The injured and dead near me,
yet all I can smell is the aroma of gunpowder.

The sun descends upon the horizon,
as the shadows of death are closing in on me. 

Note: Dedicated to Military personnel who died in battle.
