Slaughtered Innocence

The hideous and the humble
Blood peppers falling snow
As world hurtles to the tipping point
Life chokes on ignited air
Wrenching love from hungry mouths
Stars fall without sound
Some weep helpless, day through night
Ever wondering how
Never knowing why ...

Thanks Liam. You were one of the first poets to strike me when I first came on here - which proves you just get better and better with time!!!

Thanks Dr Ram. War is also at the heart of this but I ran out of word choice, choosing the softer options I think maybe because one always harbours hope for the suffering ...
