Let Go

image

Let go.
Let go.

One finger at a time

Let go
Let go

I held on too tight

Let go
Let go

He slipped through my fingers
And onto another’s hands he held on

Let go
Let go

He no longer looks at me like he used to
My stretch marks that carried our sons an ugly reminder of the beauty I lost
He no longer touches me like his wife
But like a friend he settled for in marriage
The nights stretch into days when he never comes home to my loving touch
The same touch that cradled him to sleep each night
Honeymoon phase right
Nightmare phase now

Let go
Let go

My heart whispers the words
My feet try to follow the instruction
My marriage vows hold me still
He came home this morning
The smile on his face enough to make me angry
But I prepare his bath like the wife I’m supposed to be
Happy he came back to me only for a little while
She probably made him angry

Let go
Let go

I ignore the words
As I watch our children tell him about their plans
While I prepare his breakfast
I’m not going to let go today
Maybe tomorrow

    Wow. So many people I know so relate to her. It doesn’t matter how many times u say let go let go. Letting go is harder and harder everyday. What to do?

    This is too sad. Most women are in serious trouble when it comes to relationships, I hope she will manage to let go, let go…

  4. Maybe tomorrow she will….
    But I’d much rather now, today she does…
    Her happiness is dependent upon herself and nobody else.

    I cried! Mirrors a situation someone I know is in. So sad!
