Nicole Surginer



Dust to ash



I am worn, breathless, depleted

For there is no break in the battle

Nor treaty for a moment’s rest

Discord rules my world

The moon cries blood

Toxic air clouds the stars

My soul feared the darkness

The coward has fled

My afflicted mind broke loose

Desperately seeking solace

Scattered my thoughts in the ruins

Oh my desecrated heart!

How iniquity ravaged her

Ripped apart at the seams

I lay wrecked in the sand

Sightless eyes swelled shut

Pummeled by savage scenes

Thirst for peace, a bitter taste

Numb lips chapped the words

I can no longer speak

I surrender my brokenness

to the madness of war

Bleed dry to the bone

Smear my dust in the ash
