Gotta let you go


I gotta get through the pain
The regret that I feel
Gotta get through the barrier
That keeps me standing still
I gotta get past this
This obstruction blocking my view
I hate to say this
Wish I didn’t mean it
But
I have to get rid of you
You’ve got me standing still
Like in a unbreakable routine
Glued
To a stagnant object
Too weighty to move
I gotta let you go
I gotta let you go
Consequences too serious
To take steps slow
I gotta let you go

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

O World! O Life! O Time!
On whose last steps I climb,
Trembling at that where I had stood before;
When will return the glory of your prime?
No more -Oh, never more!
