Something I Said

Words fall,
like soldiers on a field
of someone else’s choosing,

fatally wounded
in the trigger pull
of sound proof ears.

As always, In catching up I find so many great pieces.

I do like to visit.
Even if sporadic...

"Words fall like soldiers in a field" Wow, what a start!
You have a way of capturing such intense moments with so few words. A true art in itself!

Do we ever get to choose the field? Almost never. Nice and effective poem.
