Word of the Day Challenge #119-Untitled Poem

See no evil
hear no evil
speak no evil
do no evil
all common morals
so easy to hold true
yet time and time again
pictures paint a different scene.
Death
destruction
venom spewed
in vicious circles
one
two
three
drop the bombs
snipe the sniper
take down the drones
turn back the time
when forefathers ran the streets
guns in hand
shooting
lynching with impunity.
I watch
high upon the battlements
a sorceress
taking them out
one by one
while munching on my biscuits.

Endless Time

Hard
no explanation
no words
encompass
emotions fled
tears fall
voiceless
mouth moves
no one
never anyone
hears
caught up
caught behind
false life
pretending glories
mirrored falsities
one upon another
building
lives further
further from truth
further from sanity
further from…..
very 
very 
sad.
Wrapped
wet linens of melancholy
trapped
burgeoning fears
standing on the lip
bizarre mirage
flickering in the future
never
to be found…..
oasis lost.
Sad
truly
truly 
sad.
Wade the depths
sink slowly
beneath
blue waves
float
graceless
eyes wide
tears gather
stars wonder
last breath
time to say good bye
for this sad
it has climbed within
unable to find succor
I want it all to end.
