I see you – London riots 2011

I see you,
Behind my glass HD screen I watch,
I can smell the smoke, draw breath and choke.
The fires burn and scar this stubborn town.
It cries out in pain with shrieking sirens.
It's polished cosmetic skin melts away,
Leaving black skeletons to scrape the twitching sky.

I see you,
Darkness cannot hide you anymore,
As flashing lights illuminate the betrayal.
The curling smoke tugs at helicopters tails,
Pulling them closer to the charred beautiful ground.
Streets like veins, pumping dimming lights,
The sky darkens, and the blood thickens for another night.
Riots, 2011, London
