KH (October 11,1988 / West Allis, Wisconsin)


Pain so deep I can't express,
The hurt inside me calling,
Telling me to give away,
And not to keep them falling.
Free them from the tragedies
I cause with just my being.
To dropp away from this charade,
That blinds to what they're seeing.
The tears well up inside me
As I know the truth in this,
Yet, loneliness inside me
Is not easy to dismiss.
I hurt them with my presense,
So I now must let then go,
I love them more than anything,
I hope that this they know...

'You don't know true loss until you have to give up everyone, just to save them... from yourself...'

This is one of the most beautiful and meaningful poems I have read. It's so true and direct that it fits my current situation very well. This poem helped me let go and save others from myself. thnx
