the Emperor of Reflections

lost in the war 
searching for
flowers and pollen
across from hell
with a pen and a pad

i hope life is 
as sweet to you 
as your mirror is

playing piano after the war
a melody sewn with scars
in the mist of our journey
we became who we are

from stories of elders 
keys are like feathers
something to sooth your tears
when they become drops of leather

i hope life is 
as sweet to you 
as your mirror is

when time is awake 
how do you wait
my ballad of war 
for all those
who have wronged me

"i don't need your hell"

    soldier of life, this is an excellently written piece, I admire your strength and courage and your expression here. The best to you, you know I know about challenges and scars, and my bf did 7 or so years in the war, soooo, just wanted you to know, he's ordained or he'd say the same dang thing. Thanks, you helped me today. Cindy re: journey
