bombed cities

People’s lives

Laid bare and ruined,

The bones of their existence

Under a cold, unforgiving sky

Where once was rustling, deafening sound

There is only 

Silence

A whisper,

And footprints

Are all that’s left behind

The stories taken by

The ones who fled

The meat stripped off

By the survivors

All that’s left

Are the bones
