A Poem by anamezic

Acid eats away at skin slower
Than you at me
The burn is consistent, low
Frequency

Missiles are firing off in Israel
Faster than your
Faults can be absolved, 
jealousy circumvents relief
everything sour seems to do with belief.

Trace amounts of uranium were found
Not enough to amount to much
But I'm sure the president's hands are still
Sore to touch

I wring mine raw in the evening
For you to say its fair
Five minutes later the news has come
And then it isn't there

For a moment god was everyone's
But no one seemed to care

Religion war jealousy and love are words
For a minute everyone forgot which ghost they serve.

I cannot define my doubt in you and
We cannot defend our methods of compromise or defeat
so the scent of blood rises as it dries in rancid heat

Two lovers jab at their eyes
One hundred thousand faithful men take each other’s lives
And if that's good enough for God, the Government and them
meet at the break of dawn
sometimes love seems like a curtain
Half drawn
Or war that most of the world doesn't understand

because they change the channel
while we wring our hands.

Good to see you posting again. I'm sure I posted a comment on this. I'm sure it was meant to be complimentary. Did you delete it? If it I said the wrong thing, I apologise. Do write back. Remember I was in awe of some of your earlier pieces. G
