Hiding in the trenches

Can't  fight in this war of love,
I'm barely surviving.
I'll just hide in the trenches,
Beg for some bandages,
Bleed while my tears
Make trails down my stained cheeks.
I am no soldier
I am not brave
I am weak.

My heart had already hurt too much before you fired the bullet.
So when the harsh metal pierced through me.
I fell
I fell and let my tears turn the dirt to mud.

I can't fight this war of love.
You convinced me I could.
The words 'I'm here for you'
Like soft silk soaking up my blood
Till I stopped bleeding.
And when you ripped it away,
I hurt more than ever.

I I can't fight this war of love.
You did not break my heart,
Merely tapped it
And it cracked,
And cracked.
Pieces,
Barely forming one
Now it is only held together by my will to see the moon and stars.
I cannot fight.
So I hide in the trenches
Hoping that I won't get hurt again
Because my heart can only hold together for so long.

Hi,I have taken a break from wtw.But I'm back,and so excited to start reading your amazing pieces again.
This piece came out of nowhere and I just scribbled it out so it's far from perfect.

    I love the comparison between a battlefield and love, it really brings out the reality of how much love can scar you and how hard we fight for it.
