War Ruins

war zone 
deathโ€™s heartbeat
regardless of spring

people cry each other
into bomb shelters
sun crashes on bloodied walls
some screams live in the throat
some never survive to live

reading the news
I feel the fear
between broadcasts
no deadlines
for destruction
where leaders buy time
with destruction
bloodied peace offering
the dead become the dehumanization of war.
