Letting Go

The waterfall, overflowing
So calm and content.
The wake into reality
Is time well spent.

We release what others cannot
Yet to remember is to not forget
The wonders that capture us
In our mind is set.

I cannot reveal the feeling
Of my heart letting go.
It’s a visual combination
Of what I could only know.

The desire for forbidden love
Is only a dream that has not yet come true,
And the stabbed who followed aimlessly
Finds their heart’s misery only grew.

So to limit forgetting
What we know is meant to be
Is to escape the world
Of being the detainee.

I will not be captured by the sword
I choose to erase for the moment
Cause as I lay in a puddle of hurt
I pray for their atonement.

I will now ease my time alone
The waterfall never fails to know
The magnificent feeling
Of letting go…
