We fought the wrong war

I sat across the table staring into silence
So much is said, without spoken words
Wrap in the arms of loneliness
While your presence is so near

Who have we become?
How did we become the monsters within?
While seeking only love,
I hurt you and you hurt me

Tic toc, where have time go?
All the moments we’ve lost
While searching for new ones
Those moments that never came

The leaves are changing again
Another season has come and gone
Shattered dreams, forgotten promises
We fail love, We fought the wrong war.

~Micheline Jean Louis

  1. Every fight brings something with it. Love never fail. It always teaches us. Sometimes with goodness for our good, sometimes with bitterness for our good.
