The Feeling of War

Darkness holds you tight
Mud pulls at your shoes
You trudge on through the night
And imagine all you have to lose

Trees loom all around
Silence plays mind tricks
Fears turn into sounds
Shadows dart by quick

Reality finally hits
This is not some dream
No way to leave or quit
Despite how loud you scream

Time inches past
You replay the violence in your head
No matter how many time your asked
You leave so many things unsaid

War changes you forever
Hardens you inside
Your soul, once light as a feather
Now feels as though its died
