The scream of fireworks

the scream of fireworks,

 Dear little chum,

Here is my open letter to you.

Misery is like a carnival,

humming by in waves of the blast.

echoing through the Thundering skies from miles away

the scream of fireworks

And sparkling lights become blood rain,

it pours with the color red

you poor Lil soul might be excited

painting puzzle with your dead blood.

Dear little chum, I can hear your shout on the wind,

My heart clogged by mysterious throbbing

my tears want to blast like a missile

I don’t know where to jump on the land of blood.

I have put myself in your place for an instant

I don’t know how do I persist here,

someone pinned my tongue

the air is too toxic to breathe.

there is nowhere to go, nowhere to hide

I am fading here every day.

I’m terrified to death, and I don’t comprehend why

Just holding my deep breath, but I can’t even cry.

Feeling as I’m drenching alone in a lake

No one to support me but me for my sake

I couldn’t sleep because of the human noise

It’s challenging my strength

I can’t tolerate it anymore

This soreness goes so wide to treat

just Right down to my core.

Dear little friend

my basket of burdens,

occupied with the screaming of humanity

who is dying every day

It is so weighty to carry

Although this path we must cross.

Dear little chum,

I can see your frozen eyes

I can feel your poor little soul

I know it’s not your time to leave

but cruelty

The blue skies turn to grey

No more stories to explain your ache

no place to bury your Lil soul

your humanity is precious to me

Your memories will never fade.

Life on earth is glowing and

indeed with the shadow of blood.
