Forget me not

Forget me not
by Multiple Personality Disorder


One hot summer day
Leaves sway
Flesh wounds decay
Sweltering sun sails away

To be precise
Life and death
was the price
to pay

One Friday
Like any other day
Shells explode all around
Men fell on the ground
Sky turned yellow-gray

The thirteenth of August,
the deadliest

At about a quarter to three
Gas crawl and creep amply
Geese and teals in frenzy
Weedy marsh moorhens flee
Men pray to God All Mighty

In the afternoon
It's a matter of death again
A soldier grabs a pen
His mind hazy
His skin itchy
His hand shaky

"I fell in love..."
He begins to say
His mind begins to fade away
His awareness, fray
"Forget me not..."
He wanted to say...

Dear MPD, it seems that not only multiple personalities, but you also have multiple talents. I struggle to relate to English poems but I could relate to yours. I don’t know how much it says about it, but there is definitely one admirer here.

 Hi! MPD,

      Thank you for answering my question. I read I/I war 2 years ago on Wikipedia, it was hard for me 'cause the casualties are so high....I could never forget the image of teenager Basijis running thru the minefield to clear the mines.....hopefully no more war(s)....thank you for your poignant poem.

It could be any of the major wars within the last century.  One form or another of chemical warfare has been used in almost all the modern wars even after it was banned, but the war that effected Iran was Iran-Iraq war.

 Hi! MPD,

     May I ask which war are you referring to?

It is a sad poem. I watched an I/I war music video this morning, it broke my heart!
