The Warld

Bullets and kayak boats same stealth.
Ammunition adorn green belts.
Compasses showing guidance to city squares.
A dummy grenade thrown like a baseball.
The swing of a turbo fan same as an airfol.
The nervous system an arrangement for aircraft boneyards.
The heart stops a mountain erupts.
The earth just a wasteland for cadavars.
The motherboard an image for soldier's warehouses.
Your alarm a ticking timebomb.
Cable wires turned to razor wires.
Funds shipped in vessels.
Vessels the same colors as the badges on seargents uniforms.
Military dog tags like the license plates on our boots.
The conflict all around us taking the shape of our physical domain and yet so unannounced.

The moon witness' us,
At the blouse of tensed sunset,
Love, the name we bare.

And crazy they went
Vows and promises they put on head
14/2 marks their death

Dear Valentine

Val' as you are,

Gently receding
Beneath the horizon 
Fom whence she did rise

In the hallow of your beauty my heart dwelled, I sight the beams, i smell the charms of your overwhelming perfume, the power of my enduring heart fails me; then I plight to love you forever!

Under the orange ray of dusk,

The sun is a mediator of two hands
Joined as one in love.

I just wish love can see me through the moonlight, set up a light for me in the darkness and guide me till am lost no more..
