We are done with hope and honor;
We are lost to love and truth;
We are dropping down the ladder rung by rung;
And the measure of our torment,
Is the measure of our youth;
God help us for we knew the worst too young.
From the above context, pls help me explain if...
1) be done with = get tired of? we have no hope?
2) be lost to = defeat? like love won us? lost here is adj or pp of "lose"?
1 We have finished with them (no longer believe in them)
2 It's an adjective, and means, again, that thse words mean nothing to them
