Why: #18 of the 365 Day Collage Poetry Challenge

The following collage poem is dedicated to the teachers and students at Virginia Tech, who lost their lives, who were injured or terrorised in yesterday's shooting.

I'll never understand what goes on in the head of the perpetrator, what could bring someone to inflict so much pain. Does he feel less pain as a result? Only because he then shot himself. But you have to ask why these gunman don't leave the innocent victims in peace and apply the first bullet to themselves instead of the last?

The questions of 'Why' would still remain but not spoken with as much angst as is currently gripping the world.

what went on inside his head

could this really be

how many murdered


in ordinary


When love turns violent...
