I realize you need me strong
Forever capable of running this race.
Not made of steel
I sometimes crumble,
It is then
I need your strength.
You let us down
Lost your cool
Made a dangerous mistake.
My trust, now shattered
I gather the remaining pieces
Attempt to salvage our love.
On this empty space beside me
Lingers your scent
I smell you in my dreams.
Why did you let go?
Why do I hold on?
I’ll continue to wait
Just wish you wouldn’t take
So long.
Discover yourself…
Find me.

      Craig, your words just shook me! You’re so right; for me especially. Thanks for the eye-opener, not sure how I didn’t see that answer so clearly before.

  7. Beautiful poem. My favorite lines are, “Why did you let go? Why do I hold on?”
    It’s something I’ve been through and know how that feels.
    But in all honesty, your profile picture drew me in. 😉 Haha.
