Why Can't I Just Let Go?
by Sharon A. Britt
When I see them together,
it hurts so much!
When they hold hands,
it makes me want to break down in tears.
He said he loved me,
but obviously it was all a lie.
When I see the care in his eyes for her,
I can see he really loves her.
I hate being in this position.
Why can't I just cry?
It hurts so bad!
I thought I could deal with it,
but obviously I can't.
It seems like I just get in the way.
I don't want anyone to feel sorry for me,
becaus all this is, is something that will pass.
I've created enough confusion,
and I'm triing not to create any more,
but it doesn't seem to be working.
Why can't I just let go?
