The man in this poem is someone who will always hold a special place within me. I will always love him and one day we will meet again.

 The call

 

Its monotonous call

Summoned us all,

From slumber we shall wake.

 

An unknown man

Had just rang

With news that we must take.

 

I sensed their grief,

Felt no relief

AS the message was retold;

 

The lights were bright,

With a blinding sight,

The ending left me cold.

 

He's gone, He's dead,

Go back to bed,

All the while my tears unshed.

i tried to use a stlye where it was short and simple, which in a way added to my meaning. I had some intense emotions when i was writing this one.

PURE INSANITY

A very well done poem indeed. A poem about something we all know too well.

thanks, we'll experience this in life at one point or another, all we can do is learn to deal with it.
