Time To Let Go - Poem by Vanessa Hughes

Like a blow with a fist
That moment I knew
What you did then
And contnue to do

In that instant I knew
What I'd gone through
Was mainly all
Because of you

Yet, I've done nothing wrong
Which you surely must know
All I can think of
You just hate me so

Another lesson learned
And at least I now know
It is time to move on
It is time to let go

    First line:
    Like a blow with a fist
    reminded me of my poem NEVER GIVE UP.
    Keep writing.

    A powerful message to all those that are going through distress in relationships. A well articulated poem, well penned to capture the essence of the piece, and the conviction of the poet. A lovely one indeed. Thanks for sharing. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report)Reply

    Wow! Very intense emotion! Extremely honest and from the heart. It is good that you have decided to let go, it will be difficult, but I believe you have the inner strength to do it. You are very brave to move on alone. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Thank you for sharing, truthfully. RoseAnn (Report)Reply

    Another lesson learned
    And at least I now know
    It is time to move on
    It is time to let go

    I don't want to go so please don't let me go.
    The blow was not mine, at least!
    Let me cling to the poem for a few more moments.........I don't want to go......and, after all, I don't need to!

    it's time to let go
    a certain truth I know
    yet i can't leave the memory
    of your kiss
    of your hiss
    of your touch
    I long so much

    how to let my soul
    my core my deepen whole
    how to let my heart
    go far and do apart

    I see you learned a lesson
    and I must learn
    how to take my heart
    tho' rapt yat freedom earn

    nice poem it recalls memories tho' sweet yet painful thank you for the read.

    dear poet
    Hate is a word to hate
    Love is a word to love
    And life is a word to remember
    To live with love and passion
