The Colour of Violence

by K. Kylyra Ameringer

I see the men wasting away.

And I cry out


Decadence and excesses

So sure it's not them.

Blue silver touches all those

Who love.

I see the women wasting away.


Inside their homes

Darkened doorways and

Sorrys, now rages at home.

Red rivers flow in the glut of life,

It's the way of things.

I see the children wasting away.


Insurmountable, their

Death eyes

Shaded back, to silver and red.

And when it is done,

What will your God say then?
