War by Rania Ghazal

Posted on May 20, 2013 by


It was never love you declared to me

It was war

For 36 months

I heard gunshots

And never knew where the sounds were coming from

On the day I finally learned to grow a pair of wings

You ripped them off and anchored me to the ground

I used to lift my shirt up and find a new wound on my body every single day

You decided to be permanent

So you left me all these battle scars

You brushed against my body so hard

You sparked a fire

And turned me to ash

Now, I will rise.
