I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.
Feeling defeat is a poem about how she is at her breaking point. She can be strong, handling most anything, but this feeling overcomes her. She cannot find a way out of this cycle. It is waiting for her to throw in the towel. She is left speechless with tears overflowing.
"Breaking Point" by Eric Clapton
She's at her breaking point,
tears overflow with each breath,
trying to be strong
but weakness is overpowering her.
There are moments
she can handle most anything,
nothing can stop her,
but then a feeling overcomes her, she is 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.
