right to flee

an overwhelming sadness
thoughts of letting go
letting go of this earthly bond
letting go of this love

an ache in my heart
each beat tears it apart
should have never liked you from the start

no tears will fall
i let go of it all
on hands and knees i crawl

not broken
not bruised
not alone
not used

so alive and so free
lessons i’ve learned from the right to flee
