A Poem For You - Poem by Ainin Sofiya

I did what I did
To loosen your grip
So I could flee
And maybe
I wouldn’t feel guilty for it
And maybe
I did it for us
I was selfish
I did it for me
Terrified by the absolute you assured
Deep down
I craved for something more
For someone better
Or so I believed
A sudden realisation prevailed
My gratitude I hid behind my walls
The paradise you proposed
When it was you and I
But I’m finally breathing
I hope you are too

    Amazing courage in letting go of someone when realizing that they are not the right person for you. Commendable for sure! Thank you for sharing. RoseAnn (Report) Reply
