Fighting Again

Published by at 6:48 am under Heartbreak Poems

Found myself alone last night
Staring up at the stars
Tried to see Venus – She was obscured by clouds
Again I’m ruled by only Mars

The passion that makes you cling to me
Is born in the fires of war
It’s a two-edged blade that cuts both ways
Through armor and amour

It may seem worth it – For a while
I was born to rock your world
But I’ll be off – And fighting again
With every new banner that’s unfurled
And sooner or later- In a lasting peace
I’ll set my sights on you
And start a fight – Just to be in one
It what men like me will do

So maybe I’m better off alone
Find love – Just to answer the need
Leave before I wilt the flower
Just long enough to plant the seed

Always leave you wanting more
It’s what I’m all about
Wearing my heart – A target on my sleeve
Was there ever any doubt

It may seem worth it – For a while
I was born to rock your world
But I’ll be off – And fighting again
With every new banner that’s unfurled
And sooner or later- In a lasting peace
I’ll set my sights on you
And start a fight – Just to be in one
It what men like me will do

I’ll go off – Fighting again
The target doesn’t matter
Come across – So steady and sane
I’m madder than a hatter
But it’s served me well – Up to a point
I’m still here drawing air
It may be – My destiny
To lash out at those who care

    damn that was deep… and i know someone that this poem reminds me very much of.. all i can say is despite any pain you cause to the ones who care.. if they truly love you no matter what.. even if you do not see them they will always be there.. me and the love of my life tend to do this even though i never understand it.. neither one of us likes to fight yet.. he always seems to want to start one and then blames me for its cause.. it hurts for a time.. but my love is strong and i always get over it.. i just hope is love is as strong as mine.. if not i simply wish him happiness.. good luck on your journey.. trust me in this kind of thing you are not alone.. i get lashed out at and lash out in response.. love is never easy when they wrote the fairytales they lied.. the only true thing i know is it is always worth it.. no matter the cost..
