Letting Go - Poem by Timmy Tubbs

My legs pound like pistons
I ride away from you
The spokes glitter behind tall trees in a flush breeze
And the sun sprouts from the Atlantic to pull me
All my senses meet in this perfect place
To help rip you out of me
I’m leaving you on this mundane road
My brain kicks and screams
But my heart deeply swallows
I spill the ashed memories in a nameless stream

My heart pumps the pain just under my skin
I ride and remember the great times back then
I find myself smelling strands of your hair
There was a time when a noose gripped my fate
But your beauty gripped the chair
I hesitate

And my pain clinches this idea
The more I tear myself apart
The more I become who you adore
Who I adore

I split myself not long ago
And burned my soul
My map
A new one smiles and learns slow
It’s comporting now to know
I can really trust myself

The callused hands that guided me
Only point out fear and pain
I suppose I look at myself now as most did
“That man has lost his way”
“That man has burned his soul”
I burned it just beyond your fingertips
And I’d do it again in a mouse twitch
If you ever sneak inside my heart again
