Writing has always been a means to escape reality for a little while. Glad to be with people who understand how that feels.

Peace Between

PROMPT: Love and War

They used to be related you see,
almost like twins if you ask me.
Two sides of the same coin, 
but it all fell apart when another came to join.
Peace she was called,
both saw her and were enthralled.
Although they looked alike,
only one made her heart spike.
Love seemed to say all the right things,
Peace soaring on Love's wings.
War tried to say the same words,
but they never seemed to strike the same cords.
War tried to use a potion,
to turn her heart towards him in devotion.
Love found out about this treachery,
and banished War for a century.
Love and Peace wed,
and away from War they fled.
War seeks to destroy Peace, 
and Love wants to make War cease.
He follows Peace everywhere she goes,
hoping War never gets close.
Not giving forgiveness a chance,
War is seeking vengeance.
And so, wherever love went,
war would follow.
