Let it go,

let it be,

this voice that is bothering me,

your name reminding me

to slow it down.

The spaces in your head–

those crevices ain’t dead,

just waiting for a whisper

and you’re gone.

I’ve been thinking about loss, lately.


How forcibly it comes and takes away–

so difficult it is to let go.


People are my backbone

and thoughts of being uncomfortable around them

simply verifies this fact.


Yet I know my life,


is full

and there are no “buts.”


I will let go;

I’ve already started.
