within the ranks…

chopped pieces of hearts
drafting some words to say
leaving the tongue speechless

embattled kissing lips
trying to spit some aches
and summon the fiery dragon

flying news with outgrown claws
scratching the timid skin
man on the cover able to snatch a dream

rumors from the pit of stupid lies
from tongues to tongues to papers and pens
unrolling the rusty bullets to shoot

but what use the bullets can kill
the powerless, revenge is coming
the breathing silence will soon burst...
