Let This Go - Poem by Guarded Heart

Explain to me
How all security
Can be lost with one sentence
How all my safety is taken from me?
Please don’t ever ask me
Why, from now on, with anybody else
I’ll always be wary, and untrusting

Where do I turn for comfort now?
I need to know
Tell me please
Where I went wrong
You told me we’d make it
That I was worth it
Worth the love and the risks taken
Was it all lies?
Was I right, when I said I was unworthy?
And what of the dreams
Of the future we planned
Was it all empty promises?

Surrounded by nothing
I’m left out in the cold
Without so much a reason
Or the closure I deserve
I’m not being selfish when I ask
For a face to face, for one last chance
To look into your eyes, to kiss you goodbye
For you to tell me why
How can you tell me you love me
And walk away at the same time
Why make another empty promise
If you don’t intend to keep it

All I ask is your honesty
Every sorry in the world
Can’t take away the pain
Of losing what you love
I’ll never get the chance to tell you
But it doesn’t matter now
You don’t want to know

I don’t want to be alone
A part of me will never let you go
So what am I supposed to do?
Who am I to turn to?
