Senseless Killings Of War

by Ben Pickard

Your ears were muffled
with gun powder. My eyes
were shredded with shrapnel -

- you saw them shoot her
in silence while I could only
hear our little girl's screams.

Scary write. Very scary indeed with the sense of sadness too. This kinds of horrible stuffs often happens in our evil world, but these people don't know that their names has been registered in the Hell.

A very sad imaginary. Sir... All the best for the future. And Happy New Year 2017.

You were able to convey strong emotion of sadness and fear with few words. While reading, I could feel the guy wrenching fear and guilt of not being able to help from being wounded. I love free form poetry, it usually has the most emotion.

Great job on this piece.
