I’m letting you go
Because I love you.
Because I tried to help you
so many times.
Because I thought I could fix you.
But I can’t.
I can’t fix your broken life
as it slips from your fingertips
quicker than liquid silver.
I can’t fix your broken heart
as the earth and sky crush it
with their venomous truths.
I can’t hold on. We’re both too fragile.
I know what you are; because I am
you. Souls made of the same fabric,
I don’t want you to walk through hell
but you gotta recover with someone
I hope you know I love you,
because I let you go.
