I stopped waiting for you to bring me sweet words. I wrote my own! Jacqueline
I sat in silence
waited in futility
that you would bring me words
that would make a difference.
I held my breath
expectantly, I perspired
to the few words you had to offer
you starved me. You kept me hungry.
I got tired
of the hunger
I wanted more words
I stopped waiting in vain
I gathered my own words and moved on.

We are continuing the same format here and that is: there are no rules to follow. Either make up your own sayings or use a quote from a famous author that you find gives you inspiration.
Each Thursday, we will post the prompt and all you have to do is participate!
On your own blog post do a pingback to this post and make sure to “like” or “comment” on everyone else’s post. A pingback is when you embed (or copy) the URL of my weekly prompt into your own blog post.
Make sure to check our weekly prompt to see if your entry is there. You can copy URL of your blog post and include it in the comments section of my original weekly prompt if that works better for you.
Copy the badge above and include it in your own post. Tag your post on your own blog as “The Writer’s Quote Challenge,” so we can find the posts in the reader.
Unfortunately, due to the exigencies of time, Bernadette has taken a break from Writer’s quote so, we are still welcoming co-hosts. Come and join in the fun.

I really do enjoy reading your blog, God bless!
Moving words Jacqueline that made me feel sad for the speaker. I’m glad she had the sense to move on. ‘hoped hopelessly’ sums up the sense of futility expressed throughout this poem.
I love this.
Thank you for this exciting challenge.
Here is my bit
