Release

What?
Who?
Where?
Why?

Me?
You?
Us?
We are…..

Lost souls drifting
On the planes
Of our existences
And somehow,
In some way
We collided.

Was it fate?
Was it planned?
Was it to be?

Our magnetism
Stronger than
My logic,
Your situation,
My desires,
Your reality.

Although our gravities
Pulled us together,
Even though we found
Home in each others
Embrace, we must
Release.

Like a stoic warrior,
I walk away,
Chin in the air,
Stride, sure and strong,
But I dare not look back.

I dare not open
My heart, exposing it
To the shifting tides of
Emotions that promise
To overwhelm me,
To confuse me.

To leave me like
A child wanting to be
Held and never,
Ever be released.

I won't look back
Because there is no
You,
Us,
We,
Just me trying to find
Love.

daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaamn.......

this is so DEEP.

Love the one word questions...

Could see the resolve to do what's best even tho it hurts...

The last stanza...

I won't look back
Because there is no
You,
Us,
We,
Just me trying to find
Love.

WOW. Powerful ending...

Liked how this builds then goes back to how it started.

Very good.

ugh...reminded me of a love affair in my teenage years...magnetism..and gravity...but those kinds of relationship can quickly develop into black holes...and how to escape then..so better walk away before it's too late...and i agree with buddah..very well structured with the going back to where it started..

oh man...and we do try so hard at times it blinds us to what it really is and it can feel so good to have almost that its hard to give up...nice capture...

Thanks for the comments, this is one of the poems that just flowed right after I started it and I had no idea where it was going until the end.

Wishful thinking with which we can all identify. :)
