Today I Let Go of You

A poem about letting go.


Today I let you go.

I let you go of the bad memories.

I let go of the good memories.

I let go of the trauma.

I let go of the fights.

I let go of the behaviour that made me cry.

I let go of letting you make me hate myself.

I let go of the abuse.

I let go of all the things you did that made me feel like I had to hurt myself.

I let go of all the things that happened with you that made to want everything to be over.

I let go of thinking you were the one, my soulmate.

I let go of believing you loved me.

I let go of my love for you.

I let go of the what if’s.

I let go of the I love you’s.

I let go of you.
