The Fights Persist

By: Phoenixx Vann Der Snatsch

Sitting alone again

With my back against the wall.

Thoughts restrain me,

The bickering of them all.

My mind grows hazy,

While I beg and plead for sleep.

They can always say

"You sow what you reap."

But how in hell do I

Deserve to sit and weep?

Again and again I try,

With my heart to unfold,

To cease the senseless fighting;

To keep the arguments at hold.

I try to understand the way

You think and feel and act.

I hope for the simplicity

Of the fighting I hope to lack.

And yet again I wonder

Why do you attack?

So vaguely I draw away

As you close in creepily.

Upon the thoughts of today

I surrender so listlessly.

Again the fighting persists,

Is there no end to what I can see?

The voices are mounting.

Why shall you do this to me?

I just try to walk away,

But can I not ever succeed?

I finally remove myself

From the situation we've created.

Quiet and upset;

My eyes undialated.

Finally, I've given in.

I am wrong, and never right.

Again and again, this repeats.

As time continues, all I will know is fight.

And soon the time will come

When I shall just take flight.
