Sometimes I’m Scared Of Letting You Go

Do you think
humans have the capacity to dissolve
relationships after they’re gone? To break
connections,
to unremember
unknown
unfeel?

Do you think
lovers have the ability to fully walk away
from what once set their world ablaze
to the point that they burned—
beautiful
self-destruction
in the name of forever?

Do you think
two people can forget the way another’s lips
tasted on their mouth
or how love was carved
on their soul
like tattoos on skin?

Do you think
hearts can retell their story over and over
until the resolution
is no longer the same?
Until they are two separate
beating
beings?
Until there is no
belonging
to anyone other than oneself?

Do you think
I will ever learn
how to be
anyone other
than yours? TC mark

Life Getting Stale? This Book Will Inspire A “New You”

You leave
because you have to,
because leaving is necessary,
because your survival
depends on letting your soul shift
in the wind like a grain of sand.

Become the person who is open and soft, not harsh and hidden. And watch how the world opens to you in return.

“This poetry collection gave out a lot of realizations. I just have to be brave. I need to have strong heart, and a wise mind. And just because things are a mess right now, doesn’t mean they will stay that way until the end.” — Muggleboooks
