*before I Give Up* - Poem by Katie Briggs

After an hour drive
we're in the same place
We're competing with each other
we can't seem to win this race

Your words, they linger from your lips
as they wrap around my heart
You pull me in closer
before I fall apart

You think I have something to say
but I'm waiting to hear you say
That you don't want me to go
I'm the smile in your day

But it's another restless night
ending in a circle going around
Before I give up
the silence kills the sound
