i am at War

i am at War

with myself

with ghosts that come out at night

with all the missing pieces.

i am at War

with a faulty memory

with bad karma

with self-destructive tendencies.

i am at War

with the Stars and the Heavens

with this destiny

with mornings that tarry.

Wars and Rumors of Wars will endure blindly.

Like the sands of the shore, they will blow over me my whole life.

In every good morning, a trumpet waits to sound its battle Cry against me.

But …

i am at Peace

in your arms.

And there, only silence rages around me.

a downpour of Armistice.
