‘I haven’t been honest,’ with

you. ‘I said that everything was fine,’

and it wasn’t. ‘There are things I need to

work through,’ and I’ll convince you to let

me go. ‘There isn’t anything you can do,’

except stay when I’ll tell you not to.

  2. I find myself struggling with letting go or not of a good friend relationship, and I think your words speak to that which we all go through whether in intimacy or long-term friendship. To be true to oneself and to be able to let go of that which no longer serves me is an axiom for good mental health and well-being. I strive to put my attention on what is life giving for me. Thank you for sharing your poetry.
