Poem: Letting Go

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

Letting go is about her deserving a man who treats her with respect and kindness. One who is willing to stand beside her through good times and bad, but his actions are filled with deceitful games of lust. Life is too short for her to play his manipulative games. She is letting go.

"Letting Go"

She deserves respect and admiration,
a man who treats her with kindness,
who listens to her every word,
willing to stand beside her
in good times and bad.

But his actions are filled with trickery
uttering words he cannot take back,
ripping her heart into pieces
with deceitful games of lust,
too fearful to trust her with his heart.

With life too short for double dealing,
she no longer plays
his manipulative game,
she is too weary for this struggle,
she is letting go.

"Let it Go" (from "Frozen") by Demi Lovato

Chrish,

Thank you.

It's probably the best decision, but it is hard to walk away from the one you love.

Few ever truly make it.

The pain is excruciating.

One should trust this and protect their heart.

Have a great day gal.

That's the most prudent decision you'll ever had. It's not going to be easy but the pain of letting go is worth it.

Another lesson to cope!

A bunch of love to you Ms Brenda
