Poem: let you go

By: Linda M Crate


all in all
you’re just another character
to kill
another scar i remember
when the nights
howl with loneliness shining brighter
than the moon
another mistake i made and another
chance i took that i shouldn’t
but we all roll the dice;
we can’t always land on top
i am sorry that you once haunted my bones
but i don’t regret my choices
they’ve made me who
i am—
grateful for your rejection because without it
i wouldn’t have discovered who i was
meant to be,
and i would have never published my novel
because i would be too busy
trying to get you to love me the way i loved you;
everything happens for a reason
you taught me sometimes
it’s just better
to let go.
