Fighting A Losing Battle

This week’s photo prompt is provided by Sonya with the blog, Only 100 Words. Thank you Sonya!

They had been fighting ever since one had come into the realm of the other. It was not as if neither could live while the other would survive. They could coexist but they wouldn’t.

Both of them tried to out try each other but as with all bouts, might is right, and one started to lose. The defeat was extraordinary – each scar of the defeat stood for the world to see.

The war between Time and Architecture still rages on. The constituent of nature won, just as always, against the creation of man. And as always, man always lost; and carried on Fighting A Losing Battle

Ever since the fort was built by the king, the rampage of time had begun.

Time could exist without affecting the fort, and vice versa, but they didn’t.

Might is right; and Mighty Time stood strong and bit the fort, bit by bit.

Each impairment of the fort, stood for the future to see, an extraordinary defeat indeed.
