I Release You...

I release you...
from my love
the depths of which you couldn’t understand
ready, willing and able but you hid your inner man

I release you...
from the intense lust we shared
hazed and twisted my emotions
paper thin words whispered
though I really cared

I release you...
from the grasp of love I longed for in return
you made me feel foolish for craving more
especially when it was me you chose to ignore

I release you...
knowing time expired on our love
sooner than I’d admit
remnants of our friendship
left to disintegrate in an emotional pit

I release you...
with the prayer and hope
at some point in time
we come together again sans hesitation
full of mutual intentions, dreams and adoration

I release you...
though it pains me to

I release you...
though I still miss you

I love you but…
I love myself too much not to…
…release you

I am a writer but much of my work is read only by myself. I am glad that you put this piece of yourself out here for us to feel. Your voice is strong and real. This poem was the one I needed this morning. I am happy that it found me.

I was just writing a good bye letter mostly for myself and I googled "I Realease You". Your poem is exactly how I feel.

Thank you for sharing this. I am having a hard time letting go of someone I love. I know for my own well being, I need to let go. I googled 'I release you' and came across this. Now I don't feel so alone in how I am feeling.

@searching, you're definitely not alone. I've been there more than once and while it does take time, I can tell you for sure that it does get better. Hang in there, once you release this it opens the door for so many great things :-). Thanks for reaching out, I wish you nothing but the best!
