Deployed To Battle


A soldier without an army
Battling without cause

A full caliber smile disguises
The weight of her mind

A fortress built with tears
Rivers of consequences
Guarded with fear

When a knife is thrown
She knows it must land

Often back at her
Double-edged steel
Aimed towards her heart

She continues to throw

Actions become weapons
Shrapnel of words
She is her own enemy

A bomb built to wound
Mysteriously capable
