Crisp autumn leaves

Mold under a decaying corpse

Droplets of rain

Descend from swollen clouds

Branches and twigs

Conceal the dead

Life is taken

From the young

 

Tears of terror

Fall from bloodshot eyes

Blades of grass

Bend against ashen skin

Lotus petals

Sway over an inert body

Life is taken

From the young

 

Hands entrapped

Within rope bindings

Mouth gagged over

By a work tie

Clothes torn to rags

Nothing is hidden

Life is taken

From the young

 

Gore drips freely

From open wounds

Life seeps away

From the body

Webs of lies

Tangle within themselves

Life is taken

From the young
