On the Brink

On opposite sides we stand
Beneath skies leaching light
Eyes on each other, wary
Mistrust shining golden
In the haze of an uncomfortable peace
A fragile harvest
Failing beneath a flood
Of bloody outrage
And outraged blood
The distance growing
With twisted words
And false promises
That breed and seep
Their way through nations
Beyond borders
Beyond control
Beyond understanding
Until once more
We find ourselves
On the brink
