Letting Go Again
by Ella  Kay

Letting go again,
closing my eyes
as you fade from
my arms.

Stepping back, turning away
feeling tears on my face
wash through my heart
like a winter storm
freezing my world
to ice.

The words,
frozen in my heart 
never on my lips
or in your ear

I shiver
as the pain
reaches my soul,
catching my breath 
in ripping
agony, hurry

Retreating footsteps
closing doors
It's done....

A quivering sigh,
shoulders back,
head high, clear wet eyes,
mask in place,
I turn to face tomorrow

Without you......
