No Lasting Peace

in my broken dreams
there is a skirmish going on
a border dispute
rather than all out war
between memory and truth

how these combatants
came to be enemies
is not clear to me
yet both sides seem led
by the very same passions.

lasting peace
like victory
one way or the other
seems unlikely
though I hope
for a truce…at least

  1. This reminds me of PTSD nightmares, though I thankfully don’t have that. I do feel this annoying dispute between my conscious and subconscious though, in that my subconscious wants to keep believing the lies of a past in a damaging long-term relationship. I hold out hope of a lasting peace, look forward at least to the truce.
