I saw the holes in your head
Those kind of photographs don’t lie
The result of barbarity beyond my reason.
I saw your face through the bars
Of a tropical torture chamber
My eyes do not know how to look now.
Your body is silently screaming
And my mind and my mouth are on shut down
I want to say it is all past and know it.
Instead you and I will share nightmares now
Are yours less because mine are more
I really hope so.
