Apnea

Battling at the thought’s end. Ruined cities. The last survivors were helped to escape together with their unborn children. Eyes tossing nervously. Fears floating on schizophrenic reality. A ghost passed by resembling her, yet it is not possible she survived of the massacre – she risked her life, bet our happiness. Memories, naked, spring from the soul’s catacombs to remind us the youth’s past. We chose the way we wanted to lose, the defeat hurts less. Empty chairs looking at the sunset like our blood was never spilled in this battleground. Swinging between the fear and the sky having the apnea capturing my sorrow.

I think that you brillianly use the concept of apnea to draw broad strokes of other topics. It is also a very enjoyable read

You just so as you say. Transportation used the apnea to touch on other topics ...

I like this and especially 'schizophrenic reality' and 'apnoea capturing sorrow'. Welcome to Poetry Soup. I have only been on here for a few months now, but the soup is a good home and sort of family.

Exactly. But with what describes this sad poem the reader may suffer apnea. I speak metaphorically. I always use symbolic titles.

Back here once again, Miltos, Welcome to Poetry soup, I hope you enjoy the community. Here, you will find friendly poets who enjoy supporting one another. I myself, enjoy reading and commenting those who want to be read. The only time I give constructive criticism is when a poet desires it. However, if for some reason the poem is not my field I will guide you to someone who is more qualified than I. Stop by and read one of my poems if you like. My poems are not perfect, but I have a feeling you might like one. I encourage you to check out the contest page and read to receive comments. Tell me a little about your poetic skills if you like. It will be my pleasure to follow and read every poem you post from here on :) We are Lucky To Have you. Your New Poet Friend @-> LINDA <-@
