What's Fair About It?

What’s Fair About It?

All’s fair in love and war
So many times I’ve heard it before

But I have a question to test this thought,
To question love and war,
A new fight to be fought.

Sure it’s true if you love me and I love you
Then warring for that bond
That love to be won
Isn’t so wrong, more like sanctioned.

So what happens if I love you,
But you not me?

What happens if I’m at war
But you are free?

For I am at war,
But not with another.

I am at war
With love, strong contender.

And so though you don’t choose,
You are against me.

I have hate on my side,
Defending, defending…

But it does nothing,
Except tear me apart…

Stripping my soul…

Breaking my heart.
