The Battle


The winner of this war
will not be awarded medals
of valor.
Or ribbons for bravery
But we will both
walk away with purple
battered, bloody, and beaten
from the disaster
that we’ve wrought
upon each other.

We are at war
only our weapons
are not guns,
bombs, or missiles.
We engage in up
close and personal
hand to hand combat
or rather
tongue to tongue.

Both of us are committed
to winning
at all costs.
Not realizing what we
are sacrificing, just
to say that we are the
victor not the victim.
