All’s Fair in Love and War

A juggernaut

came crashing  through

carefully constructed walls,

leveling everything in its wake

There she stood,

 a crumbling fortress

No shield, no weapons

(all the guards were dead)

Everything there for taking

Innermost chamber seized

Heart held captive 

Nothing left to do except

surrender
