LET HIM GO
I would have gone naked for him
I would have gone hungry for him
I would have given up everything for him
I would have given him everything, just to be with him
I would have given my life for him
I would have died for him
I would go crazy at the thought of losing him
I would go crazy at the thought of sharing him
I would lose my mind for him
I would cry in the mornings for him
I would cry in the afternoons for him
I would cry at night for him
I would cry all day for him
I almost went insane for him
I almost lost my mind for him
I almost went crazy for him
I caused his family to hate me for him
His friends hated me too
My soul ran dry from the tears I cried and
my heart bled dry for him
I loved hearing his voice
I loved his strangeness
I loved his oddity
I loved having his intimate presence in my life
She loved his platonic presence in her life
She begged to differ for his character on every point, platonically?
He shared an intimacy with me, made love to me, laid with me, held me close and spoke the words, I love you, to me.
He even uttered, Will you marry me? and I wear the diamond and sapphire ring he subsequently bequeated to me.
He shared a platonic friendship with her why she said she knew him inside out of her.
She even offered him cupcakes, twice and once complemented with the promise of a sweeter life and a sugar injection!
Oh, no, no, no, you’re all wrong, she wasn’t turning him on!
Oh, no, no, no, it’s platonic, so there’s nothing wrong.
I tried the friendship thang with him too, but it didn't work out, dang!
I loved him
I loved his life
I loved his being
Yet, he did not love me
He was an abuser, washed up, beaten and wasted by previous lovers why he became a user
I had to let him go for the platonic one he chose because he knew not love – he didn’t know how
I am alive
I am alive
Go safely, my precious one, go safely and, in time, your love will shine through you to love one true to your heart, when the art of true love, of a woman, comes naturally to you.
A good man will come to me
A good man will love me truly……
