Let you go

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 suppose.

 

I don’t want you to walk through hell

but you gotta recover with someone

else.

 

I hope you know I love you,

because I let you go.
