Defeat - Poem by Humayun Nasir

I thought I could bring you down
with this nimble hand
crashing like sand castle
wind or wave was not necessary
If I could only fly

Bring you down, slowly but for sure
on your knees

And now look at the setting sun
spreading rays and darkness together
As you brought me down
on to my knees
without fear, I bleed and wish

If I could only fly.
