Shattering the silence

My Gloves come off

Loves sucker punch tearing out my heart

Sadness lulls me to sleep

Missing are your arms to hold me tight

Most hurtful your words screamed

Tearing at what little was left

I am down for the count

You threw in the towel

Yet you won the final round

But lost another love

Too proud to accept

The gloves were always on you

Champion of my heart

Winner of nothing.

Lost it all for a title.

You are the undisputed Champion

Of doing your worst to me

By a total knock out.
