Diseased Mask of War MAG

Final words scratched
onto a legally worthless document
life signed away
in blood like ink

“i loved you, 'til my heart lost its beat”

his body
in unrecognizable pieces
my worst nightmare

i had dreamt for months now
of feeling his lips
dance on mine

praying his cold tags
would never return home, without him

my prayers left unanswered
as his love disappears
six feet beneath the warmth of mine

"lost will and testiment" that was my writing prompt... i have never had to deal with death so far in my life. But my ex boyfriend is in korea fighting for our country, so i decided to write about how i would feel if something did happen to him.
