Note: This poem was written from a challenge about two years ago (a little less maybe). We had to use the phrase "tormented love triumphant hate". This is the second time I've posted it here.

Misspent youth with passions ebbing
lives lived in cold, hostile dread
lies shrouded in vows given
truth left hidden in words unsaid.

Cold passion in battles waged
while children became the prize
enduring pawns to warrior parents
not knowing which one to despise.

Years of agony and the battle raged
no victory for either side
peace will reign in the house of war
only when the combatants have died.

When did the line ‘tween love and hate
get so battered and so muddied
Who gave the signal to the battle join
who was first, beaten and bloodied.

Tormented love, triumphant hate
joined in wedlock profane
finding battles won or lost
in wretched delight, victorious pain.

Thanks for reposting this one...hadn't seen it before.  So much truth to your words.  Wish I could say I couldn't relate, but that would not be true.  Great writing!!

... and again I am amazed.  This is the sort of thing that loses no power in repetition, but rather gains it.  Thank you for sharing this with us again ...

 Full fathom five thy father lies,
Of his bones are coral made,
Those are pearls that were his eyes;
Nothing of him that doth fade
But doth suffer a sea-change
Into something rich and strange...

I'm glad I noticed this one before it slipped down the pages! Powerful poem Sharon.
It's a shame that love, so often, has to end with "winners and losers" isn't it?

Thank you all for your kind comments. You would be amazed at the different poems we had by using this phrase. Ron wrote an excellent one, btw. If he wasn't so busy, I'd ask him to post it.

Oh Glorious Ms deVine - this is such a terrific poem!  It says everything so well - you are a wonderful poet with the way you say things that are so glaringly obvious only AFTER you shed the light.  Simply wonderful.

Hi Miss, deVine,

Besides the fact that you met the challenge so perfectly you hit this subject so on the head and it is such a shame who ends up really being the victims here. Wonderful writting my dear.

Love, Cerenity
