Crimson Tears

Crimson Tears short poem

Photo by honikum

There’s a world of hate
Outside my door
And it matters not
If you’re rich or poor

The brave and the weak
Are equally at risk
From the enemy within
And his evil task

Horror no longer hides
Behind my TV screen
I no longer need a remote
To hear the awful screams

The invited guests have
Turned on their hosts
An insidious cancer
With a horrifying cost

And the blood runs cold
Upon our streets
Crimson tears
Beneath defiant feet

Rest easy fallen heroes
Your work for now is done
You did us proud and in our hearts
Your memory will live on

The candle of your spirit
Will forever light the way
For those you leave behind
To light their darker days

And when their loss is greatest
And comfort can’t be found
Wrap them warm within your love
Let them know you’re still around
