Defeat - Poem by Bryony Sheldon
You hear moans behind her bedroom door,
You don't want it to be true-
But we've both been here before.
Don't confirm your suspicions,
It's best to just turn away
Because there's no use in fighting
When you've nothing left to say.
Innocence can be torn with pride
So grit your teeth and close your eyes.
Say goodbye to the girl you once loved,
She's laughing down from the storms above
Where men die and heavy hearts lay to waste
And broken dreams succumb to their fate.
Poet's Notes about The Poem
Your energy's gone, your armour's been stripped away.
You're helpless, alone and bereaved.
