    spent my entire life
    searching for you
    jumping through hoops
    and traveling in circles
    just to have a taste
    of your sweet flavor
    only to be disappointed
    time and time again

    well LOVE
    I am done!!!
    do you hear me
    I said I quit!
    I know it's been said
    many times before
    but I really mean it
    this is it!!!

    no more chasing,
    searching,
    wishing,
    hoping,
    or praying
    I really give up

    And now that I quit
    Don't you even dare
    come a knocking
    For I am not even
    looking to be found

    For years and years
    I gave you my very best
    but now I am sick & tired
    just plain fed up with it all
    So LOVE on this night
    I bid you farewell​

    In the Spirit of Sankofa and Real Truth!

    Saying goodbye to LOVE...Glad its just a poem



    asimplepoet,

    I agree with all posters and their comments about this write my sister friend. Your pen flows deep, how do you come up with all this:), your range is exceptional, hitting on all fronts, so to speak. Here is my favorite part:

    And now that I quit
    Don't you even dare
    come a knocking
    For I am not even
    looking to be found

    This reflection of daring causes the person reading the piece to really become involved with the realilty that its over, quitting for real, very deep.
