Love is a Battlefield

There are declarations written in your eyes

And war falls from your laugh

Victory sits upon your lips

And I’m caught in the aftermath

Left in a devastated state

When your gaze seeks out new stars

Something, someone new to conquer

And all that’s left are battle scars.

    I really like this one. Short and to the point. Very succinct. Love is a battlefield, when it's not real. The scars do heal though. All one has to do is find an ally. - Phil A.

      Thank you. And I agree.

      Love can be a battlefield until the right one comes along and then peace and love conquers all. Good write.

      Wow! Really good. Bit scary though.

        See? I can be dark sometimes, too. And I'm really proud of this one so thank you.
