My Soldier

Well I just saw a commercial for the Military, so I thought I would write a poem about it! It is not my best, and I dont really like this one. I dont know why I am posting it... Oh well here goes.



My Soldier

My cherry red lips

Press firmly to the cross.

Your face is imprinted -sketched-

Your arms around me, whispering in

My ear.

Your hugs... Your kisses


torn away; is the feeling.

One bullet. then Two.

A soldier you stand.

Solute you do.


You leave me.


away-from me.


I can never hide it-

That pain in my chest.

-/i collapse/-

 agony takes over.


I scream at them.

/their blood in my hands/

:their LIVES i have taken:


Forever My Love,

Rest My Soldier.

Sincerely Yours,
