Young Love In Auschwitz
Not into life too firm, and dying slow
before the years intended for death's claim,
youth wasted by the way she had to go,
she never had the chance to feel love's flame;

nor cast her flashing eyes in teasing's charm
to courting boys, who begged her company,
whom otherwise would keep her safe from harm
and far removed from how life had to be;

though spring was on, the time for love's sweet breath,
in hunger is a pain that stops love cold,
and in love's place the hope for instant death
was all that kept her here, and growing old.

Somewhere deep in her heart, his probing eyes
brought feeling her life couldn't recognize.

good season for ghoulish poems
Well written .. I think ... still wrapping my head around it ... like the idea

I think this could have been done better and it deserves another attempt. Reads a bit awkwardly as it is.
