The Flames of War

Tell me,

When you are done raging

Like a sea in tantrum

And beating a tiring tempo with

My eardrum

Will you gather the pieces of my happiness?

You are the the fire in harmattan

That consumes the forest

Will you burn every broken branch

The earth has ever born?

Tell me,

Can you bring my dead Love back to life?

Every time you stab my dying affections

With your two-edged tongue

Are you nursing them back to health?

You are the darkness that eats the sun at sunset

On the wood of my heart may soon dance

The black flames of war!

Dear troublemaker,

Can you masticate the ashes of my agony?

For now, the smoke rises

As the only indication of

Imminent crises

I rest my pen.
