You vanquish and vanish my love.
In defeat I still find you kindred.
I have somehow been made whole.
Gone now but how forgotten?
Never by me.
There was a recent time
I would have raged and faltered,
I came within a breath yesterday
But forgave you as you left
And so I went on my way.
You cast off love
Like an old garment
Like an old garment of mine.
The lace of my trinkets is gone.
I am left stolen, abandoned.
You vanquish and vanish my love
