Letting Go - Poem by Brandy Elger

A certain sense of softness
no tension in the air
she knows that she can’t fight it;
the feeling of despair

A certain kind of loss
only known to those who love
she couldn't fight the tears that rolled
when they were hugging their last hug

a certain sense of loneliness
the first time they're alone
she knows that she has lost the boy
with whom her heart was home

a very distinctive sadness
to which there is no cure
she knows about the aching heart;
the pain that she'll endure

a certain sense of helplessness
when you're forced to let him go
she shows him that she loves him still
by leaving him alone

a certain sense of worthlessness
filling up her mind
she lost the meaning to her life
and suffers for all time

an awful kind of drossy angst
after love has left
she knows that she must now move on
after having had the best.
