Time Past

By 24th April 2010December 9th, 2019No Comments

Red sun kisses the west sky,
Night once more begins to fall,
Leaving a taint of falsehood.
Honour and vows are broken,
By the cruelty and lies.
I leave my boyhood behind,
Starting afresh: A grown man.
Time past soon silvers over,
Though betrayed and bitter,
And left with nothing but hate.
Tear glazed white pebbles shine.
Saffron face pointing skywards,
The crocuses start to bloom,
Then quickly wither and die.
Life skips past so very fast.
Dark clouds once again gather,
Envy overtakes my soul.
Drifting into depths of death,
I am a old Soldier,
Recalling conflict time past
