January [2] 2017 - letting go

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

I
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.
