Felled Pt. 2
Often, I hear them say
Everything is going to be alright
while whispering with stains of death on they
sealing defeat in the absence of twinkle in their eye.
they stand there with fear in their eyes
me laying on the ground sputtering
with blood and water dribbling out of my mouth
drowned in defeat.
They do nothing but stare and walk away.
