vacantly disarmed

solemn desolation
torment, horror
fabricated uniformity
.... look here! look there!
to the echoes of silence.
exposed to ridicule,
harm supplied

...... unsafe.

retract, defend,
push forward again.
curse of a reflex.
truths of unheard words.
ruins of my being,
trampled upon, destroyed.
barely recognized,

forfeited assumable thing.
me a.k.a it.
mistake absolute.
tossed away
roach of unseen reality.
acquired for amusement
reputably disposed
dependently weak

Semper Fi

The statistics? 1 in 4, 1 in 6?
...then there's me the imaginary number

I read this poem in probably less than a minute the first time.

And yet I find I need to keep reading it line by line so much slower.

'solemn desolation' - that's just so powerful and meaningful.

Thank you USMC97
