I set You Free

I set You Free

A Poem by dawn aulis

I Set You Free

I am hurt I must confess,

You caused me pain deep in my chest.

The story goes about sleeping dogs,

To stay away, from their fiery fog.

I could not stand to let you be,

I had to poke and try to see.

The lighting flashing in your eyes,

Was it pain, or just a disguise?

So I probed, and picked my way,

Till you broke down, and I had my way.

A cornered animal, with no way out,

I backed you in, and then heard you shout.

A cut so deep within your soul,

You bared to me, it took its toll.

And now you’re gone, it is only now I see,

How much I cared, that you were free.

You let it go, that pain inside,

I set you free, let out the tide.

I could not know that you would go,

Or just how much that would hurt me so.

Now I sit here by myself,

And cry for you, so heartfelt.

Why did you run away from me?

Now I know, now I see.

The truth was there, right from the start,

I had to know, to own your heart.

You bared your heart just for me,

Opened the gap, for me to see.

A hole inside, way down deep,

I looked at you, it made me weep.

But to my surprise, you turned and ran,

I broke your heart, which was not my plan.

I only wanted to see inside,

To show you the truth, there was no need to hide.

I want you back to plead my case,

You opened up, and won the race.

Now you’re free of all that guilt,

Break them down, those walls you built.

I can love till you are whole,

I’ll comfort you, and fill the hole.

The gift of love knows no end,

I’ll stay with you and be your friend.

And if you cannot come back to me,

At least be happy, I set you free.
