The bomb

 

 

I don’t even remember

How everything started

I only remember dropping a bomb ...

 

I’m dumb and deaf because of the blast

Everything is confused and  muffled

And distant and incomprehensible

Outside and inside me...

 

The bright flash of the explosion

Blinded my aching eyes

And I can’t see anymore

Where’s the blue of the sky

Where’s the green of the fields

Where are the million colours of the flowers

 

Everything is dark around me

Everything is dark inside me

 

 

 

 

 

My hands feel like blown away

I try to cease my tears

But they hurt

And they bleed

And I scream…

But  I can’t hear anything

 

Not my painful cry for help

Not mine or other voices

I feel nothing but pain

And I’m going crazy...

 

I fear my hands will never

Touch your hands again

Or my eyes won’t look in your eyes

No more

I fear  my ears will never hear your voice Again

Or my heart won’t love, anymore...

 

I don’t even remember

How everything started

I only remember dropping a bomb ...
