I lost the moment I said yes,
I lost when I made the attempt,
I lost the happiness that made sense,
surrendered for the pain of confusion.
When the walls of reality crumble,
Is success really worthwhile?
When bonds year in the making,
are knelt on the funeral pyre.
I lost when I stepped forward in pride,
I lost in the hesitation ignored.
I lost in the heat of the moment,
and now I am lost in the cold.
