Worth Letting Go

When you reach the point in which all you want to do is
Kiss her hard against a wall,
Bring her in close and listen for her heartbeat,
And watch the corners of her mouth curl
As you fall in love with the space between her eyes and yours,
She will give up.

Do not take the heartbreak as the end of love forever.
Some things need to be restarted in order to work properly again.
Do not take her forfeit as an eviction notice.
She may not want to see you the same
But no matter how many times she shuts you down
You have to believe that she wants to know you.

When the very last kiss is exchanged,
Tell yourself it didn’t make you fall deeper.
Because now you are the only one worth lying to.

When you reach the point in which all you want to do is
Delete her number and never remember what it felt like
To grace your fingers across her skin,
Shut her out and forget
How her lips feel before they see the day,
You will want to give up.

You have to believe me when I say
That someone who is not willing to fight
Is not worth fighting for.
You have to believe me when I say
That there will come a time that you will find
The same happiness you had with her, alone.

When you get to the point of no return,
You will want nothing more than to return.
But she cried for you too,
And nothing that is worth loving is not worth letting go.

  1. This is very good. The more I read, the deeper I fell in to the emotion of what you were conveying. I’ve loved and lost in much the same way. Me a poet of sorts, a sometimes writer; her an artist on many levels. Our last kiss felt sadly final. I am impressed by your line, “But she cried for you too,
    And nothing that is worth loving is not worth letting go.” Sometimes, when it’s she that leaves you, it’s easy to resent her, to, at times, hate her; to think she felt nothing as she left. But, yes, she hurts too, even if it were she doing the leaving.

    • I’m happy to hear that you connected to my work so genuinely. What you are saying is exactly what I was thinking when I wrote this. Thank you for taking the time to respond to my work. I find that it is hard to hate her, because there was a time when she was my everything.
