What is worse than defeat?

A victory you can’t really share with anyone else.

Thanks to practice, I’d learned how to handle failure all alone.
But success is even more lonely and depressing than I ever imagined.
Grief and despair occupy the space reserved for joy and relief.

There is no victory here.
