Conquered

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.

Break

I gave him my heart

He broke it

I was honest to him

He took advantage and lied

I put my guard down and got vulnerable

He put up his walls and disregarded me.

Maybe I should have stayed away

Instead I tempted fate

I knew he was the wrong kind

But still, I gave him my heart willingly

Despite knowing it would just break.
