The Paradoxical War

The battle rages like the holocaust
I appear to be fine but i’m actually lost
my mouth smiles while my poor heart cries
I give loud laughs but tears fill my eyes

Agony has never been so sweet
the line where love and hate meet
the blissful, wonderful, torturous pain
and the horrible pleasure are one in the same

I see your face and don’t know what to do
do I curse your name or fall in love anew
it seems as if only one is the logical choice
but logic is fleeting when I hear your voice

they say it’s better to have loved and lost
but they don’t ever speak of the ultimate cost
they don’t witness about the meandering mind
unable to get the peace that it’s trying to find

It seems that over and over I find myself here
on the great precipice of the fog and the clear
I fight these battles but really what for
there is no end to this paradoxical war

But still there is comfort in the eye of the storm
Your smile can kill but it can also keep warm
No matter how much my heart irreparably breaks
For you this war I will forever happily undertake
