A poem about desolation, isolation and loss of humanity and contact.  This poem is about looking back on a better past and realizing the present and future are not desired.

Aftermath

Contact forbidden

vacant eyes yearn

for a yesterday gone

 

Empty lives know

only this desolate time

aftermath of the apocalypse

    For the world’s events have rumbled on since those gagged days,Like traffic checked while at the crossing of city-ways:And the haunted gap in your mind has filled with thoughts that flowLike clouds in the lit heaven of life; and you’re a man reprieved to go,Taking your peaceful share of Time, with joy to spare.But the past is just the same–and War’s a bloody game…Have you forgotten yet?…Look down, and swear by the slain of the War that you’ll never forget.Do you remember the dark months you held the sector at Mametz–The nights you watched and wired and dug and piled sandbags on parapets?Do you remember the rats; and the stenchOf corpses rotting in front of the front-line trench–And dawn coming, dirty-white, and chill with a hopeless rain?
