Creative Writing Poetry

Keep What Is Yours

Never let another have
the songs you used to love,
or the poems you used to write,
or the places you used to go.

Let those favorite songs
transcend a letting go
and a moving on,

let those poems be 
ever laced between your fingers
without attachment.

Let those places hold
a happiness
that can’t be taken
with the loss of someone

who would rather lose you.

    This is absolutely beautiful and feels so so personal to me right now. I can’t actually put into words how much I love this! xx

      Thank you so much! I’ve had to deal with this in several breakups and found that halting my normal life wasn’t helping me heal. Glad it resonated with you xx
