I Wish I Could Let This Go

 

I wish I could let this go.

 

I wish I could unclench my fists

Which hold too tight to worthless hope;

 

And release the pain and regret

To drift away from me

Like a feather disturbed by a gentle wind.

 

How I hate this unseen presence

Which grips my heart and my mind

Each time I’m nearing acceptance of our fate;

 

And makes me reach out again

Knowing there is no hope.

 

My grip, nonetheless, tightens again

And won’t let go.
