Collateral Damage

Left for dead 
on the side of the road
no real chance 
they can be revived
Collateral damage 
a sad bloody sight
it’s hard 
to recall them alive
If they were bodies 
they’d be in the ground
but the death 
is more of the soul
Flatlined friendships 
strewn all about
as we struggle 
to bring back control
The air is thick
with the stench
of rotting love
slain in fear
Dear Lord save us now
fix what is broke
our hearts
are in need of repair
