Defeat

Abundant expressions tender recurring themes
Of misplaced pledges resigned and destitute  
A sole endearment resides in striking gleam 
As only my eyes in blindness could
They crave the sound of a graceful name
A place for doubt to crouch and bleed
the remnants of sad songs and hidden strain
and release beyond and positively repeat…
That I dream in red not of blood
But of roses aware and sensing that
in you the same cannot be said,
In me the rose’s petals spread
