The Lost Soldier

The Lost Soldier long poem

Photo by DVIDSHUB

The lost soldier;
He used to be a family’s shoulder
Things happened that made him colder
And act like a boulder
Looking older
Than his age
Caused by rage
And the many phases
And stages
Of his life
The many faces he stabbed
They say he did wrong and called it right
Like killing a pregnant woman
And the baby inside
He became inhumane inside
His story had been told
Since I was young
Till now am getting old
Of his ascension and rise to glory
And his depression and fall to fury
The lost soldier;
His real name always withheld
But they always mention the weapons he held
People he fell
Regrets he felt
And how he walks around this days
Already in hell
His repay
Even these days
The war in his mind replays
The lost soldier;
They say there are a few children
He raised but all ran away
Because of the disgrace
He still hopes one day
They will come back and it all ends with an
embrace
The lost soldier;
So many lonely years
Living in constant fear
So many bitter tears
Living in laborious sweats
Not even a family member
Comes close or near
Not even December
The lost soldier;
I wonder
If he has surrounded
Thoughts, desires and all
So much emotions compounded
He needs no phone, no time for calls
But he still stands tall
Even when children taunt
And make him uneasy like a hunt
He has left all religion
Saying he could not make the connection
To his resurrection and salvation
He found no explanation
The lost soldier is truly lost counting his costs
until his heart stops .

Lost Passion

Lost Passion short poem

Alone and unwanted. Unnecessary and useless. Unable to satisfy. In need of replacing. The heat of the moment. Now died down. Left unfeeling. Mind still racing. A touch once hot. The passion now gone. No longer needed. No more devoured.
