Letting Go {a poem, part 2}

I am hurting inside,
as I always do
when I must be stronger
than I know how.
Letting go will not be easy,
but I must set you free –
out of my arms,
and out of my heart.

As you walk away, remember
where your heart stands
is where mine breaks,
because the world is not mine
to control, and

neither are





  • from Alexa ♥:

    Originally, I tried to shrink both parts of this poem into one piece, but I think it suffered, so it’s now in two parts.

  • from Nouvelle Bardot:

    i feel like there is something missing. it needs something to grab me in the beginning. i really do love the last line.
