Letting go

by Vadhini Munien


It hurts now,

More than ever.

I don't know what to do.


How do I move on, when it's his voice that makes me feel better?

How do I move on when every memory of ours is on replay 24/7?

How do I move on, with the thought of you saying those very same things that you said to me, to her?


I feel lost now,

More than ever.

I don't know what to do.


How am I going to live every day after this, knowing that we can't be together?

How am I going to live every day after this, watching you be happy with someone else?

How am I going to live every day after this, knowing that I'm not going to be the one standing next to you in white and gold at the altar?


I am empty now,

More than ever.

I don't know what to do.


How do I find someone else, when I compare everyone to you?

How do I find someone else, when it is your name that's etched onto my heart?

How do I find someone else, when it's my soul that you have captured?


I will heal.

When the time is right,

I will know what to do.
