Let Me Go. - Poem by Stephen Hovious

Teach me to fly; so I can soar amongst your clouds,
Give me a light; so I can dispel countless dark shrouds;
Let me in close so I can feel your soft touch and breathe your soft scent;
Let me so I won’t become entangled in my descent.
I’m in too deep and there’s no way out,
I’m falling without a savior; that’s no doubt,
And I wonder to myself, will I ever feel whole again?
In and out of a time warped trance,

I begin to loosen my stance,
That’s when you decide to knock me down.
You throw your hands into the sky,
I slice my wrists; begin to cry,
Have a good night’s sleep knowing you did this to me.
I’m sorry to say but you can have your way,
You’ve tore me down; left me behind in every way,
This breath may be my dying breath.

There’s one thing I’ve always wanted to say;
I still want you, anyways.
In the middle of the fall, amongst the shame of it all,
You only brought me closer.
