Blackout Poetry (Some Old Some New)

Here are the latest additions to my Blackout Poetry page. Some are old and some are new.


TOO FAR

The trees shake
The world is weary
The gash of the bullet
Has gone too far

BEHIND THE SHADOWS

A framed photo locked
Their faces together.
The two of them laughing
Behind the shadows.

BATTLES

Like anyone else
I face battles of
human weakness
And faint heart.

MADNESS

Look upon the madness
On the ridge of today. 

KEEPSAKE

The briefest moment;
Different lives.
His voice...
Her heart...
Tears...
And a keepsake.


RED WHITE BLACK AND BLUE

The crowd needs someone,
NOW!
A bright spot on the
Roadmap to teach
The next generation.
PLEASE!

SERVICE

Boys became men.
Their courage paid
for my ordinary life.

DIVINE INTERVENTION

The news came...
My life ceased...
He took over.
