Let You Go

I was surprised when I first saw you,
Your mouth was a rigid line,
Stretched tight across your delicate face,
Where beauty and beast intertwine.

I knew why I had come to you,
And my defences were prepared,
But as soon as I stood before you,
I felt crippled and impaired.

I had planned what I needed to say,
But I couldn't make a sound,
The words disappeared behind my teeth,
And left my quick tongue bound.

They danced inside my head,
Screaming to let them out,
As I looked into your eyes,
They dissolved into nothing but doubt.

What was there to say,
To one such as you?
I needed you to see my anger,
But I couldn't follow through.

I was too afraid to ask,
But I still need to know,
If you ever cared for me,
Why did you let me go?

My mind teased and scorned me,
Reminding me of what I felt,
My heart was lonely and sore,
Black and blue like a swollen welt.

My lips trembled beneath the pressure,
But the words in my mouth were numb,
Standing right in front of you,
I became blind, deaf and dumb.

The truth is I can't hurt you,
And I would never try,
Because once you were my friend,
Even if you left me to die.

I was too afraid to ask,
But I still need to know,
If you ever cared for me,
Why did you let me go?

Now I see the reason,
And I understand why,
I came to see you one last time,
So I could say goodbye.

You left without a word,
And I was all alone,
But I realize I don't need you,
Now that my wings have grown.

I was too afraid to see,
But now I finally know,
I really did care for you,
But it's time to let you go.

I almost started crying.... (and it's very hard to make me cry) It's a beautiful poem, and yet again, I can relate to it. :heart:
