Why Did You Even Come?

Why Did You Even Come?

A Poem by DDave

. strategic ejac.


after the better end of fierce conflict

and the adrenaline of overtaking things

   *alive and healthy*

comes the guilt over all the empty spaces

    that were conquered 

and emptied

    for no real reason

like some kind of vengeance

or a f*****g war crime...

   even if it doesn't even rhyme;

"where you don't belong"


there was nothing there. . .


my dear,

why did we even come?                 


(to play with them)

   ,      so it did feel good

to play for blood


     where no one asked

and nothing mattered 

(don't look now) 

     what a f*****g disaster      

(don't stop now)   

     repeat the same fiasco

                     misuse your best tools

(Time goes by)

 - it was fun,

   but not funny

 (and i'd do it again)

   - in a f****n' heartbeat

(who knows why we ever come?)


   to do it again - fu
