I Can't Let Go


These tears fall for you 

Are you worth it? 

The physical pain I feel when I try to face reality,

Only damages me more. 

You’re everything I’ve ever wanted

I could’ve had it all

Voluntarily I cut you off,

Who am I to grieve? 

Like I’m missing out

On a one of a kind love 

Which truly doesn’t exist 

My imagination, a gift 

Actively works against me 

As my body retches to grasp onto 

Your faint presence 

I cant let go.

    Why does love treat us like that, the ability not to move on as well as we would like, which is summed up beautifully in your poem

    • justamerewoman

      Thank you for your kind words, unfortunately love can either be the best or worst thing, who's worth the risk?

      • Hugh

        True, but love whether good or bad is one of the things that make us human, we can't really appreciate good love, i believe until we have had love that has gone wrong
