Letting Go

Letting Go

A Poem by Layla Anne Massaro

Letting go might sound easy but it is not.


I have finally decided to let you go

Wishing it was a brilliant option

Although my tears will always flow

I just need to make the last conclusion


Here in my heart you will still reside

The greatest moments of the two of us

All the impossibilities that I have tried

I will directly return it to where it was


Me: “I love you”

You: “I love her”


It was hurtful when you answered me

But then I thought of just accepting it

The painful scars that you might not see

It made me down from my head to feet


Me: “Goodbye”

You: “Thank you”


Letting you go is easy for me but…

Forgetting you will take a long time…

Author's Note

Layla Anne Massaro
I am letting you go just to make you happy. I know that you don't need me in your life anymore but just to let you know, I felt hurt.

Readers, bear with me, I am awfully melancholic right now.

i love this piece...i like the conversation with it...

there is much passion in the pain that thrives within these words.

i would leave the last two lines out though..that second dialogue is a perfect ending to a perfect piece of letting go.

But I have to bear it.
I am really very sorry.

Well, I guess, in any relationship, one person always loves the other more, and the best love is unconditional love, not expecting something in return, but looking at the other for a source of inspiration.

I really can understand this. The place you are at or were is a place that really harvested the soul. It can wreck havoc on the mind and senses. So I understand and can identify with this.
