Who started the fight?
No one asked my permission to break my heart in two.

What was it all about anyway?
The wrong or right thing no one could do.

Why did the war have to be so cruel?
No one has an answer to that.

Where do we go when the war is over?
No one knows where peacetime is at.

When can we recover what was lost?
No one cares all the lines haves been crossed .

Allís fair in love and war,
keepers and captors have all paid a heavy cost.

Itís a war of words and at the end of the day .Thereís not much left to say.

We fall in and out and somehow in the silence everythingís ok.

Behind the walls of silence itís unfair -
but thatís the only place to go.

The feelings of love are still part of the war many of us used to know .

Yes Paul, wars of words between people are never-ending
which is a signifigant sign of why in the larger scale
and scope, we don't have peace!

Loved the last line of this. Nicely done.
Reviewed by Judy Lloyd (Reader)
Interesting point of view here in that most wars are the wars of words. But the casualties of these wars go on for years.
