I release you now, so go off .Your free to live your life.

Your dreams plans and crazy notions hold no bearing on me

I release you.

You were never mine, but I was yours completely.

I gave up my life for you

Waited on every call, every piece of affection.

You ignored me yet there still I stayed.

Did you appreciate it? No not once, why? Because I was never yours.

I know that now, I accept that now.

 And I think that single fact hurts more than anything else.

I release you, this second this moment.

I expel you from my heart

Because if I don’t do it now I know I never will.

I will forever hold on to the hope, the dream, the maybe, the someday…..

I have buried every fantasy, burned every dream of what I wanted.

You were the one who told me that life isn’t about what we want.

Life isn’t a dream, a fairytale a fantasy.

So I release you. Walk away, and don’t feel as if you owe me anything.

I was never yours to owe anything to.

 I release you, closing are heavy dysfunctional book filled with bondage and bad memories.

Pages of heart ache, with small sentences of love.

And as I sit back knowing full well in my heart I will never touch nor open that book again

I smile, because in releasing you I have released myself as well.

Liked the ending best! Letting go may be hard, but if you don't- you never get to what's ahead.

Thumbs up!

Many Blessings,

If you've done everything you can and you can do no more, then it's the right time to walk away and release yourself and with a clean conscience that enough is enough and to accept that no more is fine.

Thanks for your sharing these thoughts. Great poem and God bless!

I love it. Letting go is one of the hardest things we have to do in life but sometimes its the most rewarding.

Only when we are free are we not imprisoned! "Pages of heart ache, with small sentences of love." Could we but read the book from back to front, but then, we would loose so much of the inbetween.
