Giving Up

You just don’t
Get it,
Do you?

For too long,
I’ve sat here,
Waiting for you
To be yourself.

Now, I’m done
Waiting.
I can’t do it
Anymore.

I’m letting go.
I’m saying good-bye.
I’m deeply sorry
For our loss.

But the fault
is yours. It’s
On your head.
And now,
I can be free.

Nice poem. Simple, yet spoken with great clarity. Organized well, and for that, I am grateful. That's so crucial for us as writers. I like the format and the short phrasings. It works well with your poem. Great writing overall. 5 stars. :) Would you please comment on two of my poems (you can choose)?
