Letting go
just letting go
of each and every thread
that kept me bound to you

I watch as they unravel
and feel sensations
traveling away
even as the final threads
just drift away

and I find that I am more myself
than I have been in quite some time
while oddly, rather than despair
or the pain of breaking hearts
I feel relieved
that you have finally found
another one to lean upon
for your weight
the very density
of secrets that you keep
was always much too much
for me to bear

and the prison walls
that you had built
to keep me in
are melting down to ore
as gold and silver
highlight colors of the dawn
and run right through the core
of all I am
