Let Me Go

Let me go,

I think it’s time

It hurts really badly on the inside

            Let me leave,

            Just go away

            Silence tomorrow, today and yesterday.

                        I surrender to all this pain,

                        all this hurt, and suffering

                        has got to end, if it means ending my

                        life so be it.

                                    I’m tired of pretending,

                                    I know you can’t see it.

                                    When its burning and churning inside like a disease

                                    Just release and let me go please.

                                                Let me go,

                                                Let me leave,

                                                Just silently sleek into the darkness of my misery.

  1. It’s a good poem. I think a lot of personal suffering comes through in it. I think that’s the way poetry is sometimes, as I’ve written similar poems.

    • Thank you for reading my poem. I have been reading your blog to get tips on blogging. Your blog about inspiration really helped me to say what I feel. Thank you.
      I look forward to reading some of your poetry.

      • Have you been writing long? One of the poets I was particularly was Maria Ranier Rilke the German poet. Have you ever read any of his work? lot’s of images of angels in his work. You should check him out.

      • I’ve actually been writing for a very long time. I have never published anything. I write for myself. It brings me a sort of peace to be able to put my emotions on paper.

        I have never read Maria Ranier Rilke’s work, but I will most defintely check it out. Can you send me some of your work?

  2. Consequently let him that thinks he is standing beware that he does not fall.

    No temptation has taken YOU except what is common to men.

    But God is faithful, and he will not let YOU be tempted beyond what YOU can bear, but along with the temptation he will also make the way out in order for YOU to be able to ENDURE it.

    Quoted from 1Corinthians 10:12-13

    • I am embarrassed to say that I really had to think about the first two passages. I do understand that I am not standing on my own, it is only with God’s help.

      Your words are encouraging. This poem expresses my feelings. I think that God has blessed me with the power to write. By me putting my feelings on paper it is my way of enduring. God works in mysterious ways and when things get so bad that I want out, I pull out my pen and I journal these emotions. I write all the bad things that I am feeling. I don’t know why and I don’t question it; I just let my pen go to work. I believe in the bible and I believe in God with all my heart.

      I am glad that you read my posts. I hope that my writing will reach others that feel the same pain and anguish as I do, and maybe it will encourage them to write so that the pain doesn’t eat them up inside.

      Thank you Summer for reaching out to me.

  3. When I read this I am thinking you are telling a love that its time for their obession with you to end because the attention from them brings you pain even when they are not physical there. Which is a concept that many do not understand. Most people believe that they should fight for you when usually the best thing is to just move on because their memory begins to haunt you. I can say this about my ex- husband. The pain of divorce is torcherous enough, you don’t need the added stress of guilt; which is ultimately what that person is trying to make you feel.

  4. Empoweredlady1. Don’t ever give up your writing, you have a voice, I can hear in your poerty and other writing I’ve been doing here. I want to thank you too for stopping by my blog. I posted an article today on “”Finding Ideas”. I thought you might find it helpful based on your commentary.
    Best wishes!

    • Thank you for reading my blog. Thank you for the kind words. I was feeling a bit upset. I have to keep in mind that my writing has always been about coming out of my shell and being more assertive. Sometimes I shut down when I feel like I’m being attacked. You reminded me that it is my voice.

      On my way to your blog to read your post. Thank you so much for the encouragement and advice.

  5. I meant to say I can hear your voice in your poetry and other writing I’ve been reading here. Forgive me as I’m typing impaired 🙂
