Tag Archives: defeat


The darkness seeps in
Loneliness within
A crushing weight
This slow heart rate
Slower it beats
The pain defeats
All trust and hope
How can she cope

The joy recedes
The fear impedes
A chance for life
Within this strife
A struggle too great
So she bends to fate
This life alone
Is where she’s thrown


Dreams lie shattered in the sand
Broken by the fateful hand
The pieces are many and spread so far
Shining like pieces of a splintered star
Attempts to make them whole falter and fail
So many pieces missing, hope grows pale
This puzzle now may never be complete
So with forlorn sigh she concedes defeat
