Poem: Giving Up

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

"Let Her Go" by Passenger

"Giving Up"

That nervous feeling
in the pit of her soul,
waiting to hear word
with distance lingering.

Mind wandering
replaying each word,
frantically trying to discover
a reason for his silence.

Lost in the confusion,
not worthy of her time,
she bids farewell
to his attempts.

"Sad Song" by We The King (official lyric video) ft Elena Coats

Lorna Lamon on March 15, 2020:

You have manage to capture the sense of hopelessness within the lines of this poignant poem Brenda. I hope she does find a love that is more deserving of her.

Cyber Awereness on March 15, 2020:

It is what you learn at the end of life’s path. Love just is not possible to find for some people. No matter how hard you try or do not try.

A sad time indeed! A sweet song rembered, sadly.
