I Quit - Poem by cheryl davis miller

I've loved you with an un-dying love.
A love I think you know nothing of.
The kind that don't change with the weather.
A love one can't describe; nor measure.

A love that produces commitment.
That is not neglectful; nor absent.
It's there in the good and the bad times.
Constant and consistent; not sometimes.

Through many heart-aches, I have stood fast.
Thought love could each episode; out last.
This last round of craziness did it.
This poem is to tell you that; I quit.

    It's a wonderful poem, and the Poet's Notes adequately explains the sudden jerk at the end. The poem was cruising all along with consistent assurance:
    'It's there in the good and the bad times.
    Constant and consistent; not sometimes'.
    But at the end, it was quite a jerk to know:
    'This last round of craziness did it.
    This poem is to tell you that; I quit.'
    And yes, I agree with your note. The poem gets 10/10 from me.
