and all

and all those words

you heard

shouted screamed

demanding

you

to listen

your ears

pierced

with the sound

ringing

when i was a child

i heard a bomb go off

we were playing soldiers

the explosion

the sound

there was no sound

the world shook broke

it breaks

you fell to the ground

shrieking tears of fear

shaking

you will never stop shaking

until you

stop

freeze

frozen

seizure

mouth frozen

locked shut

screams dying

in the back of your throat

while the tears flow

unwilling

we were children

playing

soldier

where were you?

and

and

what?

we were there

here

everywhere

yet nowhere

yet nothing

yet no one

just there

we played

in the sand

on the beach

our little war

expanding into the universe

becoming the only thing that matters

or ever mattered

and one day

you will have

it

you will have

your prize

and i

i will burn

end in fire.
