Running through darkness
I want to break out.
I call your name, and I
scream, and I shout.
I need to see you.
I want you near.
I will hold on
until you disappear.

Tripping and sliding
and falling down,
I reach for your hand, but
you're not around.
Bruises and scratches,
I tend to my wounds.
I carry on
I run through the tombs
of the unknowns.

Fascinated about my recent trip to Washington, D.C., I decided to start writing a song about an unknown soldier who was abandoned by his fellow comrades on the battlefield. :)

"... How dreary to be somebody-- How public like a frog;
To tell one's name; the livelong June-- To an admiring bog"
-Emily Dickinson

I think this is really great, and you should add a little more. I'm guessing you were already doing that though. What you have so far is beautiful and intriging, I'm looking forward to the rest :)
