 LOVE'S LAST BATTLEFIELD
When did you begin
to see me as the enemy?

How could we ever try
to salvage love
when you so quickly
forgot who I am?

I am the one
who kissed you
on our wedding day
and smiled up at you
with a vision of future hopes
in my eyes.

I am the one
who bore your children
with a happiness so great
I wanted to burst into song
and embrace the world
when they arrived.

I am the one
who rejoiced
in your triumphs
and wept by your side
holding you when
your mother died.

I am the one
who slept by your side
supported your dreams,
gave you my body,
opened my soul
holding nothing back.

It's me.
I'm still the one
who loved you,
who tried so hard
to get you to see
who I really was…

But you only saw
the aftermath of hurts
from my lost and broken dreams,
and so left me here a slain enemy
on love's last battlefield.
