The Letting Go Part

I let go of you over coffee as I taste the bitter sweet

I hold on to you for a moment as I pass a familiar street

I let go of my love that cradled our impossible feat

I hold on to the feeling of your arms in my sleep

I walk away from our future that I built in my mind

I hold on to the hope that I’ll see a sign

I reminisce in your kiss and the passion you revived

I exhale my feelings of romance and exhale the tumultuous ride

I delicately hold the hope that I kept alive

And swiftly, violently, push it away as I cry

I mourn and grieve and parish as I’m searching for the truth

Begging and reaching and hoping but only feeling rue
