Spectations

A study, of words, in crimson, sometimes blue, rarely yellow.

I’m Letting Go.

So maybe I got in too deep,
Heard the unspoken,
Saw the unseen.
Felt without even being touched,

But now I’m letting go.
Because I’ve been hurt enough.
Because I’ve cried too much.

And since you can’t wipe my tears,
And since you won’t let me in,
I might as well leave you to your misery,
Before it takes too much of a toll on me.

I’ve been by your side,
Held my ground,
Not faltered,
I’ve fought for you,
I’ve lied for you,
I’ve gotten hurt for you.
But it’s enough now.

I just want you to know
I’m leaving.
I’m making my own way now.
You’re welcome to come along.

But this time all you get from me,
Is going to be all I got from you.

Because I’ve shed enough tears for a man who doesn’t feel,
Fought enough battles for a man who doesn’t see,
& lied enough lies for a man who doesn’t hear.

I just want you to know,
Time has tried & tested me many times before.
I have been bruised,
But not shattered.
I have been broken,
But not defeaten.
I fall & I fall & I fall,
But I find my feet again.

Even through all that
I do not forget to love,
I do not forget to care,
I do not forget to feel.

& that is what is different between you & I.
