Just Let It Go - Poem by millie st.claire

Waiting for this night to end
And you know its over
I hate to see this
Maybe it's the wrong time to give up

Why do we have to part while
the love is still there?
Why do we have to suffer?
Why do we have to cry when
somebody bids goodbye?
Why do beginnings have an end?
Why do we have to meet
only to lose in the end?

There are questions left unanswered,
words left unsaid, letters left unread,
poems left undone, songs left unsung,
love left unexpressed,
promises left unfulfilled.

In a relationship,
one of the hardest things to do
is saying goodbye and letting go.
It is as hard as breaking a crystal
because you'll never know when you
will be able to pick up the pieces again.
More often than not, they who go,
feel not the pain of parting:
it is they who stay behind that suffer,
because they are left
with memories of a love
that was meant to be,
a love that was.

It's over.He's gone.: (

    i think you'd kick ass at writing ballads.
    your thing seems to be romance anyway.
    i love the unexpected endings you write.
    they make me wanna ask questions! ! !

    A rather plain description of what must be a torture of some kind has to
    leave any reader wondering why you bothered.
