This was a pretty heavy poem to write. I can’t say that I have ever been in a relationship depicted in the poem, but I can relate to the emotions of it all. We all have the relationship battles that we fight throughout our lives. In a story I wrote, two characters constantly fell in and out of love. So you’ll notice the heaviness of that aspect throughout the poem, but then it takes a turn where they come back to each other. I won’t lie; I can be an emotional writer, so I did tear up a bit writing this poem. I thought of someone that I couldn’t live without to evoke my emotions.
If you love me, let me go
Last words as we depart
Tears flow as we say we know
A love too strong to tear apart
Rip the veins of memories from my skin
We broke our hearts against our hate
As I wake to scream, just let me in
Picking up the pieces, we crumble under the weight
We both lie to maintain control
Our hate started as love
I need your touch to console
But you push me away with a shove
We breakdown because it’s loves end
But it’s our love that will transcend
Let me know what you think!
Thanks for reading!
