To Let Go – June 12, 2019

The sadness that penetrates,

Steam rises from your skin.

Letting go

Of something,

Right in front of your face.

You reach out to

touch it,

But itโ€™s no longer

The same.

As it once was,

To you,

By choice.

Bleeding out for too long

The clot has begun to form

The sticky

Gelatin like substance

Holing up

The bleeder

Holding on to

The ugliness it has become.

Your resistance grows old,

Rubber band snaps


Life to rip through your body.

Not as it once did

With something ajar.

You still recognize your reflection,

But it has changed


At your wavering beckon call

To let go.

    1. I think, sometimes, believing (or being made to believe) we should let go creates more angst than holding on in a positive way. Why should anyone let go of their beautiful memories? After all, thatโ€™s all some of us have. I think itโ€™s the negative stuff that needs to be let go. Food for thought…

      Thank you for sharing. I bet her emotional will is stronger than you think โค๏ธ.
