Casual Death

June 1, 2021

FREE WRITING

it's almost scary
how a basic element
of sentience
failed
i'll admit times are blurry
but it's a warning sign
how our empathy
has bailed
behind closed doors
we're oblivious
to the suffering
of displaced families
of corpses gasping for breath
and the humans that await 
hopeless, without rest
we glance at the newspaper
force our muscles to frown
for a moment or two
and then we drown
into an ocean 
of blood

ugh, a covid related piece AGAIN! 
through this piece I want to express how deaths have become so casual for us. it is the loss of a human being. our hearts used to sink hearing the news of even a distant relative. but due to the sheer number of deaths, we've become stone hearted, in the comfort of our own home.
