Adapted to War

Adapted to War by J. Rylee D.

I search for you at the bottom of the bottle,
Only to be faced with my darkest regrets.
Every remaining stain that I crave to forget.

We were too young and immature.
A plague for which there was no cure.

But oh, it was exhilarating.

Shockwaves of chaos rippled in our wake.
Vowing to never surrender.
Not until we break.

Is it crazy to say that I’d do it all once more?
A sick little reminder,
Of how our love adapted to war.

I have a tendency of being blinded,
By believing everyone is good.
Especially when it comes to beautiful faces and pretty words.

But what happens when the lights dim all around you,
And all the masks are removed?
And the pretty words are now laced with the ugly truth?

Sometimes the lights must go out,
For the blind to see.
And unfortunately for me,
The truth is much more blinding.

Shockwaves of chaos rippled in our wake.
Vowing to never surrender.
Not until we break.

I know it’s crazy to say that I’d do it all once more.
As a sick little reminder,
Of how our love adapted to war.

Yeah that’s what happens,
When the heart gets pushed too far.

Of you, I thought I was sure.
Hoping we could be the cure.
But turns out, our love just adapted to war.

I’m just a 26-year-old girl who spends her life daydreaming. I have always been an avid reader and writer, but recently decided to publish my poetry and a book on a public platform.

I like to portray honest and raw vulnerability in my work because life isn’t always pretty. I want to inspire people to fight for their happiness and to tell their truths, because they deserve to be heard and know that they are believed, and that they matter!
