To My Weakest Mind

Goodbye

Photo: North Carolina 

I let you fall one last time, I watch as you sink into the deaths of my mind, memories & self. I release the hold, the tangled emotional bond that I might have once felt. I would hope to feel sadness or joy, but my heart and mind remain silent as a warm numbness over flows. 

I watch you fall, a sight I’ve longed to see, a place I’ve longed to put you. I’ve seen the cruel looks of those who do not understand the meaning or Need of this moment. So I watch you fall, one last time, with a silent heart and a sound mind. Like sand slipping through my hands, you disappear.
