Their words dripped of honey,
They tasted sugary sweet
Though unbeknownst to many,
They were filled with lies and deceit

Some of us knew otherwise,
We rose up against the liar
Though none of us with proof,
They flung us over the fire

I wept alongside my friends,
For they hurt more than I
We could only wait,
Surely there would be an outcry

The proverbial fire lay waste,
To all our hopes and dreams
I watched my friends suffering,
My thoughts filled with angry screams

How dare you do this?
My yells echoed through the quiet
The people turned away from me,
In silence they refused to riot

We watched in silent sadness,
As all would slowly depart
Nothing remained as it should be,
The despair hid within my heart

We stand in hopeless silence,
For one day their crimes will come to light
But until that fateful moment,
We suffer in service to our plight.

Thank you!!
I'm glad that you all liked it

I'm still learning the art of poetry, preferring my long verbose walls of text, but I feel I'm improving ^_^

Such true words, my friend.


You are a fantastic writer!

No improvement needed, IMO.

I wanted to read it several times before responding.
