You love me enough to let me go

by Shruti   May 3, 2022


There is something inside my
body that makes my bones
soft every time I think of you.
It murmurs and groans and
threatens to dissolve my joints.

I am liquid at the thought of you.
You could take me in a cup
and drink me all away.
But instead you pour me
into a river and ask me
if it is what I want.

I say yes
and you
let me go.

(thank you)
