Poem: Feeling Defeat

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

"Breaking Point" by Eric Clapton


"Feeling Defeat"

She is at her breaking point,
tears overflowing with each breathe,
trying to be strong
but this weakness is overpowering.

There are moments
she can handle most anything,
nothing can stop her,
but then a feeling overcomes her
leaving her speechless,
crying like her heart is breaking
all over again.

She cannot find a way out,
no matter how hard she tries
this cycle keeps repeating,
leaving her lost, feeling all alone,
waiting for her
to throw in the towel.

This is so real. I think everyone has felt it at onetime or another.
