He defeated me

Pull down all my defenses

Left me wondering how it happened

Surprised me with all unexpectedness

If there is such a word.

.

I pulled all the tricks up my sleeve

He smiled through all of it

As if it was a walk in the park.

.

Brick by brick he tore my walls down

But still made me feel safe

He conquered all the hurdles

And appeared unharmed

Despite his hands bleeding just to get through to me.
