Crossed

A forgotten poem,
A writer lost,
A page unwritten,
A line out crossed.

A band account closed,
A casket shut,
A phone number given away,
A line out crossed.

A window bashed,
A bullet crumbled,
A skull crushed,
A line out crossed.

An empty stomach,
A roof with holes,
A floor of dirt,
A line out crossed.

A country scattered,
A government torn,
A war to begin,
The line you have crossed.

Yes! THis is so beautiful! It is SO emphasized and just truly captivating! It's clear that the very last line is the filling to the cupcake, if I may. This is very, very, very vivid, strong, and... I don't have the word for it! Great job; this is so well-written

Thank you, it's one of my works that I was hoping for that reaction. A wordless and describeless reply.
