Lady of the Lake poemLady of the Lake
Her green hair glistens as it surfaces the water.
Her forever gloomy mood shows, as she's stuck forever.
Her aqua dress flows freely as it blends with the lake.
Her blanket of lily pads acting as things that
Her slimy frogs call their home.
Her shriveled fingertips are traced with water.
Her gentle waves caress anyone who wades in her.
Her skin is modeled after other's choices, either transparent, or murky.
Her body never moves, yet never stays still.
Her reflections are in her control, she helps people see who they are.
Her mist that surrounds her is a mask, to make her lake a hidden wonder.
Her welcoming presence creates the ideal home for nature to appear.
Her shimmering face shows the barrier between air and water.
Her tears are the waves that occur when she is betrayed by humans.
Her beauty shows no limit, as she is the lady of the lake.
Poetic PsychosisIn thirty seconds, the next shell would fall. Every night was the same, but every night Lorenzo experienced it as if it were the first time. His throat felt swollen; breathing was hard. He glanced around at the others; young men like him who had been shipped out in the name of honour and freedom. There was no honour in this, no freedom. Only death behind your eyelids, and a fear so gutting, that it carved out your innards and left you a hollow husk. Lorenzo tried to breathe, tried to assure himself that he was still whole, still made of flesh. They had lied when they told him he was ready.
Matteo ran towards him, arms out, rifle swinging uselessly at his side. He shouted for him to run, but Lorenzo remained motionless, unable to move as his friend’s warning was lost in the constant blare of gunfire. None of them were ready.
“The cycle is repeating. It is not safe.” The voice was soft and weak, yet it carried over the gunfire and battle cries without impediment.
