A Good Man

by Samya Marbury

Demons run

when a good man go to war.

Night will fall and drown the sun

when a good man goes to war.

Friendship dies and true love lies

when a good man goes to war.

Night will fall and the dark will rise

when a good man goes to war.

Demons run, but count the cost,

the battle’s won, but the child is lost

Cynical Love by McKenzie Smith

Love is the need for affection

The constant need for attention

A craving for closeness

Without it, love deprivation

A single tear fills the room with silence

A false trust established

Disbelief sets the atmosphere, a love that perished

Words are lost in the walls, silence amongst them once again

The light from her eyes fades slowly

And darkness closes around their bodies.
