Don't Hurt Me...
You say I'm cruel,
You say I'm mean.
But I only am,
Because you have been.
You cannot give harm,
With none in return.
First it was me,
And now it's your turn.
I laugh at your efforts to impress me,
I harm you every time you are wrong.
I only do it because you killed me,
Just 'cause I'm not the girl from the pop songs.
You don't understand why I'm doing it,
You can't see my reasons at all.
Maybe you should judge yourself,
Now that hate has come to call.
I'm not really blind to your pain,
I don't really hurt you because I am bored.
I don't really want to hurt you,
But I must see Ma'at restored.
Poetic PsychosisIn thirty seconds, the next shell would fall. Every night was the same, but every night Lorenzo experienced it as if it were the first time. His throat felt swollen; breathing was hard. He glanced around at the others; young men like him who had been shipped out in the name of honour and freedom. There was no honour in this, no freedom. Only death behind your eyelids, and a fear so gutting, that it carved out your innards and left you a hollow husk. Lorenzo tried to breathe, tried to assure himself that he was still whole, still made of flesh. They had lied when they told him he was ready.
Matteo ran towards him, arms out, rifle swinging uselessly at his side. He shouted for him to run, but Lorenzo remained motionless, unable to move as his friend’s warning was lost in the constant blare of gunfire. None of them were ready.
“The cycle is repeating. It is not safe.” The voice was soft and weak, yet it carried over the gunfire and battle cries without impediment.
