I write cursive on legal pads.

I gave up

Added on by David S. Hooker.
I gave up
hiding behind fake laughs,
illusions of interest
and false plans.

I gave up
when words ceased
to hold any value;
when trust
seemed meaningless.

I gave up
after the long absence,
having to discover
that you had found another.

I gave up
searching for what I lost,
hoping to find
something better.
