empty swears
BarkatS

Black suits and dresses
 1
With the mourn of your passing
 2
Lower the deceased
 3
A series despairing souls
 4
There was a time, when the sirens rung and men wore blue
 5
A zipper over whom should rest in peace
 6
A time, when the room looked filled with dark red paint
 7
A time when I promised you were coming back
 8
In hostile white halls
 9
Pacing back and forth
 10
The agony that was brought
 11
When the blanket coated your face
 12
And now, to this solemn day, where you along with the pain
 13
Was set underground
 14
When the naïve come and ask
 15
Are you coming back?
 16
Tears burst down
 17
My head no longer high
 18
When her sweet innocent eyes look to me and utters these words once more
 19
I knew the promise I made, had been like the heart, your lifeless body tore

Beautiful, somber imagery. Your use of color is perfect.

I could imagine the whole poem play out before my eyes. I really enjoyed this.

I think L13 needs to be rearrange. It disrupts the flow of the poem.
