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.
