Letting Go

A Piece About Letting Go of Hope

Letting Go

I held on for so long,

believing by sheer will and faith that it could work.

I grew tired,

the task grew harder.

So, the day came that my grip loosened,

and I…




In a great rush, like a plane losing cabin pressure,

all that I held onto was swept away and I was wrenched upwards.

The distance between us became so great I could no longer see you.

The rushing has subsided and I am floating in the sky,

the sad ashes of my heart scattered to the wind.

My soul released now weightless,

watches the clouds dance.
