muscles aching
heart racing -
breaking
eyes dropping
on edge
brain rotting
sleep - i dread

atmosphere
thick
as a winter blanket
slice it
knife it
cut it into equals
spread it between us

jaws set
bodies erect
lay the bayonets -
battle ready
always
he seems to be

everything
tense
war
blood
gore
done.
