Wake Up, Silence.

Wake up, Silence,
War has plucked away his eyelids.
Blade and shield
Have become limb and dust,
We all bathe 
In death's lust
For maiden blood.

Wake up,Silence,
Rain has unburied 
The skull of Fear.
The sun has shunned
The love of summer,
Gravel has swallowed wheel
And man has walked
Into sea.

Wake up,Silence,
Lava has smothered island.
Night has darkened our breath
And fire has watered our bloom
Till poison to the hand.
