The Break Up

The Break Up

A Poem by Jessica Lima

I am strong enough to stand beside you and reach for the stars

But right now you are on the spotlight, and I am in the dark.

I can't carry on as is love, one day you'll understand.

I'll miss you and might regret this later

But please let go of my hand.

Break up... awful feeling... that can last... forever
until you decide to move on, which is hard...
This poem told me behind the lines, the emotions and feelings of sadness, and the helplessness when the character told to let go of my hand....
I love it!
Keep it up Jessica

You summed up the experience of letting go when we know we are following the wrong path of enlightenment for ourselves. Short but to the point I enjoyed your writing.

Yes this is a very short poem, but it's also a very powerful poem. It's hard to convey complex emotions in a short space, but you have just done exactly that, and pretty epically as well. Beautiful, and tragic. Great piece.

About
I'm kind of a big dork. Very, VERY geeky. I love poetry, and that's 90% of what I write. Life is chaos, and Poetry... isn't. It is something you can control, that's why my poetry always rhymes. I love.. more..
