    Heart breaks and broken promises all equate to tears
    Relationship like wars
    The some of most fears
    Permanent scars from a battle, where the sole weapon was a mouth
    Words pierce the soul like bullets
    Fired in the form of cries and shouts
    An emotion battle baracaded by concrete walls
    No hopes of becoming free
    Loves restraints strong like chains
    Has simply engulfed me
    Conflicts in intrest
    Tom and Jerry like instances
    In a relationship that has the stability of a ball
    Misunderstand and situation, but nobobies fault at all
    Spoils of love war
    My emotions stolen clean, without a trace
    Searched in the spot that use to be a heart
    Now all I see is a familiar face
    Reminding me of the JOY and PAIN
    How can they both exist
    The driving arguements, the pulling love
    The both just seem to persist!!
