The Let Go

The Let Go

A Poem by Acatalepsy
"

Just let it flow...

"

You were smart and I was not,

No one is serious at seventeen,

Conflicted, broken and lonely,

All the things you said you'd fix for me.

I felt like I was being drowned in your mud.

Feelings and love all at a grasp

Yet met with hesitation

Would it last? Is it true?

All the things you said you'd do...


As much as I'd want to believe,

I never gave you a chance to act out the play you wrote for me,

But was it just that?

Or was it the life you sought out for me?

A naive girl with her heart on her sleeve,

Seeking companions through other means,

I'm sorry I'm not all that you wanted me to be.

But I hope some day you'll find...

             someone like me.

Oh dear, oh there, and everywhere, theres love, theres break, your heart to take, but fear no word, for he a bird, who flew away, on just the right day. Youre free now! Pick up those wings and fly ahead, against the wind, against the storm. Ill meet you there, as we share the same dream.
