Soldier stashed a silver locket
Safe inside his jacket pocket
When the war would numb his senses
He’d break down and drop pretenses
Open up the only token
That recalled those thoughts unspoken
Images of infant, young wife
For their freedom, he’d give his life
ireland, love, war,
Oliver and Grace were planning to wed
At a church in Dublin on Easter day
They put on hold and chose to fight instead
For the fight for freedom was under way .
Oliver had signed a proclamation
He was charged with treason against the state
His dream crushed of a free Irish nation
Death by a firing squad would be his fate.
On the third of may in Kilmainham jail
Grace wed Oliver and became his wife
The man she married now ill and quite frail
Dawn next day the British ended his life.
A marriage together they never knew
Tragedy cut short a love that was true.
Written 20th September 2019.
lost love, war,
they kissed with dreams of peace in clover - for him fulfilled in Norman field
Monoku - Cliche: All’s fair in love and war
death, horse, love, soldier, war,
My one true love with eyes of sparkling blue
Our hearts as one it was our destiny
Heaven sent you for me and me for you
It would not last but end in tragedy.
War intervened I’d have to go away
To the Crimea with the light brigade
My true love I thought of every day
Our lives on hold along with plans we’d made.
The Captain said “suppress your greatest fears
Ride close ranks and do not come asunder”
The noise of hooves were ringing in my ears
Sounds they made were like a raging thunder.
A lance pierced me and off my horse I fell
Then death came down, my life I bid farewell.

angst, celebrity, encouraging, freedom, irony, metaphor, simile,
of love of war
the staff of a prophet, seen
fairness not imagine, sings
shouting out, obscenity
in search of fame, seeking stance
the moment arises, seek
of voice of power, godsend
renown supremacy, yet
prophet not acknowledged, kept
desire of a great life, sought
skill of voice, articulate
hardly ever, cheek
no longer free, famous self
seldom bite snarls dogma, link
of country of faith, kinship
all that’s true, fair play
desired fame acknowledged, pent
the home front, covetousness
war or peace love or hate, just
yelp puppy love, nice
Penned on September 28, 2014!
allegory, war, war,
The first time I beheld your being, I felt that creation helded, its breath.
Without peace of mind you are in a constant state of war within.
With your tongue, you murder your brothers, sisters,, complete strangers,
And then the innocent, as you allow the guilty to go free.
You go to war with your own heart! Yet we pursue love, or and lust,
with a tenacity and then we declare a cease-fire, that has only one truth.
It blinds us to such a depth, that the cease-fire fails.

>I do love food.
When I was young, food was rationed.
So much of this, or that, you were allowed.
Each person had a ration book for adults and a child.
So much butter so much sugar, a few ounces of meat.
If you grew your own produce, fresh veg was a treat.
And what was put on the table, you did love to eat.
Many years have passed, and food is not rationed anymore.
The choice on the supermarket shelf, tells there is no sign of war.
Now we are leaving the EU, what will the supermarkets do?
Will the shelves be empty and bare?
Or will more British produce be for sale there.
I do love food, so hope it’s there.
British, nice with a price that’s fair.<

hope, life, loss, lost love, people, sad, war,
in the street
marred by defeat
where is the truth they’re refusing?
can’t you see humanity is losing?
of senseless persecution
road blocked by political futility
breeding this brutality
paving ways brave and proud
but signs say, ”NO PROTESTING ALLOWED!"
risking their lives
to benefit future generations
placing themselves on shelves
for the sake of their children's salvation
for now, they fall
bludgeoned in defeat
with hopes of a brighter tomorrow
for this bloodshed today in the street

hate, love, peace, trust, war,
The sun will shine brighter tomorrow when...
Mankind lives in peace, but up until then
We turn on the TV and see war and hate
Mankind needs to change before it's too late
You may be Muslim, Christian, Hindu or Jew
Be honest and tell me, does it matter to you ?
Respect, love and trust, so lets get it right
Then maybe our sun will shine really bright.

For Charles Messina Poem of Poems contest.
angst, lost lovelove,
In love and war.
When broken hearts
On the floor.
But what of love,
Turned into war?
Is all still fair,
In love AND war?
Gregory R Barden
beauty, death, earth, holocaust, true love, war, world,
Our mouths and our souls mix as we become one,
Love second to none ...
The moon, that just moments before bathed our night -
Now swallowed by light ...
Huge clouds, like fresh mushrooms, bloom pink in the skies,
Soft-sparkling your eyes ...
Night, turned to day, with bright colors and aura ...
Such dazzling horror ...
Our mouths and our souls mix as we become one,
We burn like the sun ...
Our lives and world ... done.

hate, jealousy, life, love, trust, war,
Approaching life with love
Lived with an open heart,
Irrespective of others differences
Fundamentally shining light,
Everyone welcome to join me,
Oneness and unity on mass
Favouring love over hate,
Lighting a path and a way to
Omniscient love in this world,
Vehemently embracing unity
Everything equal as it ought to be,
Attaching ourselves more to peace,
Negating hate, war and jealousy
Dedicating our time to betterment,
Lifting up the whole of humanity
Irresistibly the light is drawing me
Great fully exposing the love in me
Highlighting just how life can be
Trusting in the love and the light.
love, religion, war,
Church bells were heard nearby
As minarets tall, made prayer calls
When they stood on war torn bridge
Parting with one last forbidden kiss.
Sirens of war were loud too,
But bombs much louder, blasted inferno.
Bridge collapsed, bodies shattered,
No voice dared to claim the silence.

dedication, fear, forgiveness, happiness, hope, husband, love, uplifting, war,
Blood runs red in every race
War bring tears to every creed
Hunger felt by every being
Love desired by every heart
Green envy or generosity
Vengeful snares and forgiving
Nightmares give desires to dream
Dancing twixt joy & despair
Colorful array of emotions
So much in common
Do you see me in you
Your reflection in me?
We are rainbow children
Painting the canvas of life
Compassion sees the art
In the unique dance of us

africa, brother, cute love, dream, sorrow, trust, war,
In many dreams of you, I wish
If I could get my hands on the wings
If only I could come over to you now,
It would be the best moment in my life.
Alone in a cool evening
With the light of a candle and the breeze from afar
And then the moment would draw close
And the night would become our friend
And nature would support our breathe
And our dream would seem simple
And nightmare be far from us
For the moment would be the beginning of a new era
And the dawn would bring joy
Happiness and love

Here lies the best Grandfather,
One who was very considerate.
Remembering him as a child,
I would sit on his lap.
He was a rare person indeed.
He was a colonel in the Army.
Also superlative of a gentelman.
Here lies the best grandfather,
May he rest in peace.

< once were twin towers on horizon
bombarded by Al Qaeda what sin
then came many heros
lost too at ground zero
America's flag still flew in wind
In Loving Memory To Those Lost
On 911 R.I.P. You Are Not Forgotten
Sex is a battle, love is war
I lay you down on the floor
I plunge my bayonet in your soul
You make my existence whole
I let out a deep sigh
My prick begins to cry
You begin to weep as well
For a baby inside you will dwell
absence, love, war,
I might see you in London in three days,
Then shaking hands in gesture of farewell
They move apart, going separate ways.
With anxious feelings she can scarce dispel,
She turns just once to wave to him again
Then hurries on, hoping all will be well.
When he is gone the truth becomes quite plain,
Her life must carry on in duty's ways
To help the others who will wait in vain.
Then as the nation clings to hope and prays
And life leads each one in different ways,
She can always hear his voice as he says
I might see you in London in three days.
emotions, feelings, lost love, love, passion, soldier, war,
Not a fighter
Excuse me, I rephrase...
He does fight, not literally
But for a love
He used to call his own
In his gentle hands
Never a rifle, nor a grenade
You're more likely to see
A bouquet of roses
There's only love
In his eyes
Eyes that have never seen
The ravages of war
He wages a pitched battle
In love's battlefield
A white flag of surrender
He'll never wave
Until he recaptures
His former lover's heart

Old man, face wrinkled with age,
moves slowly down bus,
walking stick in shaky hand.
Bus jolts, old man mutters.
Kindly hand grabs arm.
Fat lady, jolly face.
Aunt Betty when he was young.
Old man sits down wearily
Woman in front,
loaded with shopping,
and two young children.
One with runny nose,
other chocolate covered face.
Wife, children long ago.
Old man gets off bus,
walks down road.
Lowered head, eyes sad.
Places newly cut flowers
by gravestones, three.
Family killed in blitz.
tears run down face.
Some consecrate the carnage
Of war and infantry;
Or the argosy of navy’s
Crusading far at sea.
Battles have their triumph
When the gun is in the glove,
But the pageantry of war
Can't replace that crush called love.
For love holds more than power
It invades the soul within;
While the slaughter of mankind
Is extrinsic in its sin.
So, then my heart must follow
To the one who waits for me,
And the silence that's between us
Gives peace eternally.
faith, god, love, son, war,
My son, my son
I want to see my son
Please God, where is my son
That's all I heard
As the man ran past
Seems there was a shooting
And he can't find his son
He heard there was a shooting
On his car radio, that's all he knew
His son was all but a child of fifteen
Someone reaches out to stop him
As he drops to his knees to pray
My God, My God please show me
I will do anything to see my son
Next thing he knew they took him
downstairs to see his son
To the blood soaked sheets
God let him see his son that day
His son was an innocent bystander
Of the games, people play on the world stage!

Strange or not
Odd and fun.
That’s not all
And still are
Strange and odd.
life is life.
Not is lies.
Truth seeps from
Lies, lies, lies
Move, move, move
Lies are life.
Lies are death.
Lies are homes.
Lies are pain.
Lies are truth.
Truth is life.
Truth is death.
Truth is home.
Truth is pain.
Truth is lie.
Truth is that.
Lies will die.
Lies will cease.
Truth will live.
Truth will be.
