The Letting Go


Some†sort†of†piracy,
the†way†you†stole
my†days†away†from†me.
God,†how†they†went
so†willingly.

There†are†those†we†seek,
and†those†that†find†us.
Some†set†free,
and†some†that†bind†us.

All†I'm†left†with,
you're†only†gift,
when†you†wore†my†shirt
those†couple†of†days;
Like†feathered†wings,
so†uplifted,†I†carried†you
sometimes,†against†the†wall.

I†still†haven't†picked†up†the†mirror.
Conceded,†it†leans†against†the†wall.

I†close†my†eyes,†to†shut†you†out,
yet†haven't†washed†the†shirt.
The†smell†of†you†now†threaded
within†those†very†seams.
The†thoughts†of†you,†embedded.
Conceded,†to†dreams.

I†was†never†good†at†holding†on,
and†even†worse†at†letting†go.
