Letting Go

Maybe we tell

ourselves we’re

letting go

So the fibres

on the ropes

burn a little less

And maybe sometimes

they do

But the scars stay

  1. wonderful poetry. In some cases, it is surely better to let go but for the person, who still love, it is always hard. I´m just through letting go, and hope that god send me my big love to stay forever.

  2. The scars heal, they do….I hope. No, I know. It is just hard to remember when the wounds are still fresh, and the pain overrides the memory possibility that you will feel whole again. You will. We will. A stronger, more beautiful version meant for someone who we won’t have to let go…

    1. People with scars are more sensitive, more human, more attractive, more lovable, because they experienced a lot of pain, this is right!

      1. I think this “letting go” is very diffficult to rate. So I try to explain my thoughts. If you are following your dreams, you have to “letting go” often. This can hurt but is necessairy. On the other side, you never know, if the doors to your dreams are closed or your dreams are “letting you go”. But you have to go on, even if it hurts sometimes, this is right.

      1. sorry, a very late reaction of mine….if love hurts it is always hard, if you fight you normally know, why you fight. The harder you fight, the more you know or feel why you fight. If you have to give up, there will stay scars/memorise for ever …even if these scars/ memories perhaps make you stronger, I would prefer to fight and get what I fighted for…..
