When space is silence…

Words, sounds, and space…

I let you go


I thought you were about to leave
      I was wrong

I cried
A bit too much
Perhaps too little

I cried      for three years
Until that day
when you didn’t buy the rose
when we knew it was too late

A mistake at once
a milestone at sight

I let you go
I let me go

  6. Oooh, nice one! I could definitely relate to this. Just how much is enough? And what of yourself are you letting go when you let the other person go? Lots of ways to interpret this. Most inspiring conciseness!
