'Let Me Go! '

Why hold on to something that isn't there?
To me that is quite unfair.
You never had loved me from the start.
You used words, but it wasn't from your heart.
I saw the sadness on your face.
I tried to ignore it, because it was a disgrace.
Let me go to someone who loves me.
Because you do not want to see good in me.
Let someone else have this happy soul.
Because I want you to let me go.
Set me free from what wasn't there.
Set me free from tainted care.

You have always lied to me and not given us a chance.
Now I want to never lose my dance.
Let me fly like a bird in the sky.
My true love is here for taking me away.
You didn't stay!
You weren't my friend or husband until the end.
But there is a way through the narrow tunnel.
You need to look that way through the huddle.
I stand for the right, because Mr. Right is waiting.
Don't hate him, hate going.
You left without warning to myself and my child.
How could someone leave with guilt in the heart and guile.

We could have been left for dead.
Yet, still your words would have continuously been left unsaid.
Find another way to flow, but Mr. please, completely, 'Let me go! '

I thoroughly enjoyed this poem Cheri-and I Know how you fee. It is as if someone has wasted your time, sucked you dry, and don't even have the respect of a man to walk away-because he can't give you what you want or need. I enjoyed this.
