sometimes the thought of leaving

feels like a punch to the chest

and then

piece by piece

you’re taking my heart

where i can feel


every vein and artery ripping

until it’s no longer part of me

we are separate

my heart and i

two just co-existing

while others, i can’t leave fast enough

sometimes the days, minutes and hours

are slipping through my fingers

like I’m standing in quicksand

sinking and sinking

and i don’t bother fighting it no more

because there’s no way out

while others, a minute feels like 10 years

sometimes it feels

like i’m alone

in the middle of the forest

and lost

or in the middle of the city

scrambling to find my voice

and then i remember

all i have to live for: me

i am worth living for

this feeling is just a moment of my lifetime

no matter how hard it might seem

i will get through it

i’ve been through far worse

i’ve tested my fate

and I’m still here

i’ve made stupid decisions

but survived

so these tough days

i will outlive

i will let you go

(person, place or memory)

and welcome new beginnings

i’ll hold you close to my heart

for you will always be a piece of me
