Ghost Limbs

image

Vampire by Edvard Munch, 1893-94.

Plead

my body twists

in that space

so weak 

wrap me in your

ghost limbs

wrap around

my brittle branches

keep me tight

let me breathe

let me sway

Comrade

charleys war

 

Four years

Trapped here

Blinded

Stranded

Gunshots

Black smoke

Wraps

Round my feet

Wild eyes

Red tears

Four years

Trapped here

Kind hands

Buried deep

Sinking

Dancing

Earth shatters

Sink in

Fires dance

on skin

Waist deep

Sink in

Disappear

under the machine

Pull down the blue sky

Pulling us in

Hiding the tears

You brought

From your sleep

Lay down

In the grass

Under the blue sky

Lay down

At last

Four years

Tiredness

Bone deep

Loveless

Pray for

A rebirth

Eyes closed

Heart stops

Waiting

blood stops

shells scream

we float back

into your dream
