You Will Never Concede

She is too far into her own side of things and
Respect, no such thing right now.
You will never concede.
You are not crossing over.
When it’s convenient,
You’re an adult
Otherwise ridden off as a child.
So unnerved you wish you could throw a punch.

Yet the sorrow in her eyes,
As unjustified as it may be,
Breaks you into oblivion.
