LOVE (WAR) VETERAN

 

 

rose
LOVE IS WAR

 

 

 

I’ve heard the tales of woe
The pain and sorrow
Your untamed destruction
All the lives you took

 

I’ve seen the bloodied field of your victims
The lost eyes of survivors
Wishing they died on that field
I was there too

 

I still smell the metallic mixture
Of blood and alcohol
Slashed wrists of people
Who couldn’t take it anymore

 

But I lived to tell the story
Of love’s tyranny
Love is war
But I survived
