I always dreaded that
We'd get married &
Resent each other
Just like father did
& we'd pit the kids
Against each other
Like a war to be won
With battle lines being drawn

After the cease fire was ordered
We both tried to stay sober
But it was camouflage
Self sabotage
Collateral damage from a full blown barrage
That we invested
hand over fist until the last cent was gone
& accounts overdrawn

After we called it quits
You won the arms race
To find love next
While I'm dismantling my arsenal
With calls for armistice

Now every morning I wake
& I don't contemplate the choices we made
For wounds from the war have scared
& Started to fade
