Farewell (Reloaded) - AnupR

Farewell (Reloaded) - AnupR

Standing before a blazing fire
Contemplating broken dreams …
… the foolish desires

I stand there in a daze
Hearing everything …
… listening to nothing

One by one
I read and re-read
All the letters you sent
All that you said
All that you never meant

One by one
The letters meet the flames
And crumble and twist
With the same agony
I feel inside

One by one
The tears dry
Even as the flames die
Even as the embers fly

And so, I’m left
Bereft and all alone
In the dark of the night

I fall to the unforgiving ground
And lie gazing at the empty, meaningless sky
Wouldn’t it have been better
… to just give up and die?

A drizzle catches me unawares
Like a blessed answer to my prayers
I stand up with arms outstretched
To welcome the sweet, cleansing rain
And with every drop that rolls off me
I finally let go
… of you
… of us
… of the pain

Hey you all, this one was inspired by a gr8 friend of mine ... guess, I'm not the only one with messed up relationships ... this goes out to you, my dear ... TC ...

I know ... but first one must make the decision to let go ... and gradually, it gets better ... Although some wounds seem to take ages to heal ...
