can’t

I wanted to let you go.
but I.
can’t.

I pick at scabs.
it’s always been.
a failing and.
a saving.
so I.
can’t.

The words twist.
I know I’ve done wrong.
and do not deserve forgiveness.
I will be alone.
If I must.
but I can’t.
find another.

They say.
It will happen.
but I hear the lie.
this empty part.
of my heart.
is yours.
I can’t.
let things go.
but I will.
respect your space.
even though I feel.
that I can’t.

365 Days of Poetry: Day Two-Hundred and Sixty-Six

the pen is a viper.
insanity seethes.
from brain to paper.
no answers there for me.

the truth is pain.
I hold it, I die.
see pretty promises.
as heartache, as lies.

there’s no love to take me.
none of it was real.
should’ve pushed to keep you home.
I need to rest, I need to heal.
