I Lose

i lose
Contemplating your
mind games under the
pink sunset and the
silhouette mountains,

you’ve persevered with your
desire to be that stronger one,
you won’t allow my equal efforts,
my forced late replies to match yours,

my forced indifference to
compete with yours,
my reluctance to express my love
before I hear about yours,

your perseverance has won and
I’m tired, ready to give up,
you’re stronger,
you win,

I love you,
what more do you want?
weak, flawed
and failed,

love-struck and
at your service,
I love you
still.
