This war

Nicole battles

Nicole Lyons

I fight a war within myself

that I am certain will leave me

with casualties.

I struggle to hold on

to what little I have left

before it all turns to haze

and vanishes forever.

But I also start fires

to burn memories

and I fan the flames, urging them

on and into no more.

This war will leave me

with casualties,

but maybe I can lay them

to rest and find peace

after a lifetime without.
