Let Me Go


In the cold embrace of pouring rain

We felt our tears flow free

And our hearts break

I pulled away, afraid of hurting you

In doing so shattering myself beyond repair

We both knew we had stolen time that was never ours

That never would be ours

We could no longer go on pretending this was what it could've been

What we could've been

Eight letters,

seemingly insignificant

but in actuality,

carrying a million unspoken words within,

were left unsaid.

For better

Or for worse

You had to let me go

Before you drowned with me.
