I’m Letting You Go
Dear you, yeah you,
I’m letting you go. I’m finally letting you go. I’ve told myself over and over that I had, that I no longer desired any part of you, but I lied over and over. There was always a part of me that kept holding, that refused to let go. But that last time I saw you, that last time I let you in, I realized it was over. It had been over for quite some time, but we were being stubborn humans, refusing to completely let go. I blame myself, I was clinging to you for dear life. I didn’t want us to be over. I wasn’t ready to close our chapter. What i’ve come to learn though, is that you were keeping me from growing, keeping me from the rest of my life. So today i’m completely letting you go. I’m setting us both free. No more thoughts of you, no more considering you as an option, no longer considering you at all. I tried to be friends, I tried to forgive and forget, but some people are only meant to spend moments with us and then fade away. We were only chapters in each others stories, chapters never to be re read. I thank you for the beautiful moments, those moments i’ll soon forget. They’ll always be there hidden in my memories,sweet bliss tinged with sadness, but they don’t need to be remembered. We learned what was necessary, and now it’s time to move on. Thank you for dragging me out of the darkness, thank you for loving me and letting me love you, thank you for your sweetness. I forgive you for putting me momentarily back into the darkness, I forgive you for being unkind, I forgive you for the hurt you caused me, I forgive you for not being there during one of my weakest moments, I forgive you for it all. I don’t care what you think of me anymore. Nothing I do or think is for you. Because today I let you go.
