Who won?

Who won?

A Poem by Catherine Parks

A moment of my life. Things were never the same after this. Lost but never forgotten. But now tides are changing, wounds are mending, and we all are falling back into place.

I sat alone in the darkened room 
mascara streaked my face
you didn't know what had put me there
but you said you knew my case.

I cried for help and spoke your name
I asked for nothing more
than to hear you tell me it would be okay
as my fingers searched the floor.

You said, "Things happen." and always work out
everything would be just fine
but I know the heart you were really concerned with
wasn't actually mine.

My fingers grasped what they'd been searching for
and my bones began to rattle
at that moment, looking at you
I'd given up the battle.

I like the rhthym and rhyme to this poem. It adds to the story. Heartbreaking that a person would give in, but it's easy to do sometimes...I love the line "my bones began to rattle...."

The rhyme is well structured and adds to the poem, I think. The message about giving in seems a little scary though! Good writing.
