War Torn

It's killing me
this poison in every cavity
each part filled to overflowing the slick dew smeared down my face
my blood, torn skin nerves exposed knuckles and knees ground
I've fought you and won
I've fought you and lost
when does this endurance end?
I know no peace in this being
this battles rages with you
with me
I cannot love such as you, Mr. Deception
I cannot hold you in my sight
my war with you ends with my last breath

Melanie Breyer 2005

Did you write this?
I get the feeling it is about love or a love of someone?
