Scenes intrusive

Laterna Magica
show images and form
a ritual dance
in front of their eyes
pitch of night
slashed by, magnesium flare
horror scenery
paralyze conscience mind

Hush, hush, hush
Says her finger's touch
ease, ease, ease
lips whisper soft
please, please, please
stay, do not leave

Armies march
to the battle ground
cannon's roar
cutting screams short
Eeny, meeny,
miny, moe
spare only a few
to return

Hush, hush, hush
Says her finger's touch
ease, ease, ease
lips whisper soft
please, please, please
stay, do not leave

Memory movies
trains of thought
root him out'a
shelter and cover
make him pay
if he holler
his crime
to survive


(
Hush, hush now
fingers linger
after she's gone
)

About this poem:
- the tricky part is that it was intended to match some piece of music, and ...well...

- welcome any comments, - posted it here ( had it in my blog ) as I started to wonder what anyone else would make of it.

i like it...i get the sense that he wants to stay with her, she also, but maybe he feels guilt about not going off to cannon fodder? Is that kinda the gist of it? ;-]
