Letting Go - Poem by karen fumani

Learning to let go
I learned patience too early
Forgot I’m not taken granted I thought
I held my breath, so not to breath for life
I held so close to broken pieces, forged together.
You never noticed I was before you
As if I held a mirror before you morning,
Invincible to even think, I did not exist
Cared not what I was to say, but felt pity.
What time wasted, but no worry it has passed
For who has even lived for and the past?
But memories of old, I don’t know about the future
Who is to hope for what is in the past, instead of-
Moving on like you never knew existence of me.
Telling the truth is the only lie I ever told you
I like you was not enough, loving well mostly used,
Perfect, well you already know, beautiful as told
Always, a puzzle I can’t fit together
You complete me would be expecting a question
You brighten me with your eyes, I’m sin free
Making me smile, for mind changes looking at you
Like apartheid written in my eyes, I even forgot
And you just can’t seem to unplug me for a new one
Question not yourself I will forget you, if you want
Don’t imagine me, you never even thought of me. By: Karen Mathe
