A War of Sorts


Mingling in the wreckage
of past malfunctions,
they gather ubiquitously;
people with nothing
in common
except
the tumultuous warfare
growing in their psyche.

My two closests friends and I share very little in common; however, our differences are what attract each of us to the other.
