Can't Keep Holding On

He's cutting my rope. It's fraying in my hands. I can't keep holding on to him; it's going to kill me. I have to let him go.

 

...But I don't know if I can. He's a part of me. It hurts so much.

Life is scary right now.

I can feel the physical effects of pain and stress on my heart though.

I'm existing right now--that's all I can do.....just getting through the hours, through the days.

It's SO hard. It's hard either way---to hold on or to let go. Neither is easy.

No....I know I have to let go. I'll kill myself trying if I hold on. I have to let him go.

One could also argue that us being a part of each other is just an illusion, that we are not a part of each other............but we have left our own imprint---mine on his and his on mine.

He and I will always be a part of each other, no matter what. I wish that meant as much to him as it does to me. ...I have to let him go.

He found someone else to love. <br />
I'm a person who follows her heart, but my head is telling me that where my heart wants to go is a dangerous place to let it be.
