Let her go
She tried to hurt you
Let her go
She tried to bleed you
Let her go
She tried to dent your ego
Let her go

She doesn’t deserve you
You are the sun
Blazing high in the sky
Devouring everything in your path
She is not even the moon
For she is unable to be
A mere reflection of you

You are the ocean
Boundless, strong, raging..FREE
She isn’t even the sea
Nor yet a stream
She is but a trickle
A trickle of a bad dream

You are a volcano
Shaking and quaking
Erupting with passion
Shooting out molten lava
That sears as it courses down
She isn’t even the ash
That you spew out of your mouth

You are the giant sequoia
Firmly rooted
Standing your ground
Withstanding storms
She isn’t even a branch
Let alone a twig
Dying to hold on
To cling to the tree

You are the mountain
Rising majestically
Piercing the sky
She isn’t even a tiny hill
No, she is a valley
A hidden valley of shame
That sun disdains to reach
To touch….to kiss
To bless with warmth and light

Don’t let her color your tomorrow
Don’t let her breathe in your yesterday
Don’t give her the pleasure of knowing
She has bruised you 
Used you
Abused you

Please, my dear friend
Precious and priceless
A living breathing feeling treasure
Yes, YOU
Only then can you embrace
The one who comes to you
Who will love you 
With sheer abandon of heart and soul
One who will laugh at yesterday and mock tomorrow
For her love is not hemmed in by time
No, it’s divine
The woman of your dreams
Who has heard your silent screams
Open your arms 
And let her come!

    I couldn't agree more with this writing. This is a very necessary message for those who question their own self worth after being led astray in past friendships & relationships. Great writing!

    This is very deep..Its as if there is a one sided love in a story and the other half is getting hurt..rejected.Love is beautiful but sometimes we have to give wings to those we love..If they come back to us they are ours..If not..we let them go.Appropriate title too.

    Thanks, my beautiful friend. Sometimes it isn't that easy to let go. It is sad, when someone has such a claim on our heart that we feel our heart will break if you let them go, but...if the love isn't mutual, then the heart is broken anyway...Thanks for your sweet comments.
