A Whisper of Defeat

14 Jan

She wears on me like

the tide crashing repeatedly

on a rocky cliff, swallowing

everything in her wake, taking

what she wants, washing away

footprints of happier times.

“I love you,” she proclaims.

“Being around you is exhausting,” I say

in a whisper of defeat.

    It seemed, that your character is feeling strained by the love s/he shared with another, and, is on the verge of giving up, but, is not sure about leaving the love behind.

      You hit it right on the nail. Letting go is so very hard when it’s someone who has been a friend for many, many years. xoxo
