I Set Me Free

Updated on March 3, 2011

tears spill down like autumn rain, rush my heart in regret and pain.

a portrait of your face appeared along with reality most feared...

somehow all the pain that tore love embraced from my very core

like faded photographs of time, escape the consciousness of mime.

all it seems that I recall... the deep connection of my all,

is what yet beckons with each day, even now, in every way...

haunts my every waking hour, defies command, wielding power.

Time to set this captive free...from this yearning I must flee.

The love we shared shall yet live on but I must heal and move beyond.

What once was, remains no more... the time has come to close the door.

Today's the day I must reclaim that which you hold,and free of blame,

cut the heart strings that have bound, so no regret will thus resound.

let these tears like autumn rain refresh my soul with joy's refrain.

and set me free to love once more, to knock again on heaven's door.

      Fluffy, it is a gift that has helped me deal with those tough feelings on this journey. I can't explain it, but it is surely a blessing for me! Thanks, again!

      How blessed I feel to read such poetry, your words seem to say things I think allot of us have trouble communicating. You have the gift to bring out those tough feels to deal with, so that we will thank you.

      Very rich, words I think everyone need hear! "Time to set this captive free...from this yearning I must flee." And we must so that we can have a second chance with someone else... Thank you! :D

      Wow, so moving! I felt chills, it was that good. Voted up and useful, since to me it is both. Your words here are full of hope and renewal we all can be taught a lesson from what this teaches. Bravo!! A.B.
