I've crippled fingers
in futile attempts
to hold on to
things that weren't
mine to keep.

have bent
close to breaking,
forsaking what I've
learned to be true...
That I, too, 
am worth holding on to.

I allowed you
to think
that I'd suffer
more of a loss
if we were to let go
but, in truth
you'd feel it too.

let's put it to the test.
ready. set. let go.
