I never thought
I'd see my friend
Swallowed
By this war.
His bones slowly
Crushed
Under a thousand-ton weight,
The weight of the world.
His being picked apart
By the demons
Surrounding him.
Friends become sworn enemies,
Enemies become friends.
And so it is,
Since the beginning
Of civilization
With no end
In
Sight.

Favorite Quote:
All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.

What a brilliant description. It can also be a metaphor to modern society! I loved it!

Don't thank me for liking this, I thank you for writing it. You certainly have a way with words.

It also kinda came to be about this really good friend of mine, who was about to begin attending school. I knew he would never be the same, and he wouldn't have time for me anymore.

Awww, thanks ^.^ I don't think anyone's ever favorited my work, well, besides Raven. No one else has told me they did, at the very least. 

If you want to know the story behind this, you can find it somewhere near the bottom of the comments :)

Whoa, I totally love this! Like, it transcends through time, with real wars, or even "wars" in school. Very nice, I'm totally favoriting this ^_^

Cool story behind it. I like the way it has the feeling that it doesn't really end. (Sorry if that doesn't make sense...)

I think what you said about your life...applies to me too. :)

I'm melodramatic as well.

Yeah, I'm thinking of being a scychologist when I grow up. :)

I am definitely obsessed with dreams :) I don't think my life's really tragic, deifinitely abnormal and a bit isolated, but not really tragic. I think I'm a bit melodramatic at times :)

You like schycology? Coolness :)

By the way, great poem. :)

My ELA teacher once told me that I have a gift with putting two or more ideas or messages into one poem. I think you have it too. :)

Poem reflects your life. makes me feel like your life is sad, almost tragic.  You also seem to be obsessed with dreams. I am too. :)

I like anaylizing writing and thinking about what it shows in the writer's life. It's part of my obsession with psychology.

Thank you; it was my first really great poem since I started writing poetry. I used to always try to rhyme, and the end results were really stiff sounding.

It took this poem to help me realize that rhyme doesn't always make a poem, it's the flow and imagery,
