The Battleground

Written by: Nicole El Marj

My heart is a battleground
Enclosed by the pericardium
Involuntarily, it shuns the foe
The left and right atriums at war
Facing no other option
But to endure this wrecked situation
This is just a systematic circulation
Overflowed by blood, both forces debate
Rage, anger, fury, and humiliation
This warfare must come to an end
Both parties give in their ammunition
But wait, it's a little too late
Destiny has already determined this heart's fate
