Battle

Tags: love, loss, pain

It begins each morning at wake
The endless battle of foes
Both sides press the will to win
Casualties mount without regard.

Victory claimed and lost simultaneously
So many opportunities wasted
Each warrior valiant
Yet lay sullen in defeat.

Blood flows from each new wound
Scars from the past are empty reminders
Yet each charge is continuously met
Each side snuffing out hope.

The infinite cost of the war on love
Parts of a whole endeavoring to win
Challenges accepted and granted
In this battle between my heart and mind.
