A Heart Divided

There’s a war going on outside we’re not safe from
Every day, twenty-four hours, he battles
Every day he survives
Every day he returns to war
Every day, part of him dies
Enemies from the east
Enemies from the west
The distinct reminder of an antiquated, everlasting love

There’s a war going on outside we’re not safe from
Every night he lies awake
Thoughts of being decisive
Thoughts of seeing the world black and white
His colour-cursed perspective keeps him up at night
As his demons hound his wandering soul back to his war-torn body
His tired mind, sore shoulders, and heavy heart
Every night, he dreams of Him
Every night, he dreams of Her
Enemies from the north
Enemies from the south
The distinct reminder of an unexplored love

There’s a war going on inside we’re not safe from
Every morning, he prepares for war
Every morning, he grabs his sword
Every morning, he grabs his shield
Every morning, he enters the battlefield
The objective is survival; the same it always is
Enemies on either side
She smiles at him; killing him with kindness
He walks into class, ignoring him; killing him with blindness
The distinct reminder of a heart divided

There’s a war going on within, he’s not safe from
The distinct reminder of an antiquated, everlasting love
The distinct reminder of an unexplored love
