Letting Go (an acrostic poem)

Little things matter, but you like to look at the big picture

Even if I told you I wanted the red one, you would get me the blue

The way you complete me leaves me shivering

That is you complete me like death completes life

I don’t know why I even opened the door to my heart to you in the first place

Now I want to evict you from my presence, but I keep giving you a stay from execution

Granting you another lease on my life

 

Got to learn from your mistakes and wash my hands of this mess

Out damned spot!  Out I say!

  1. Staying away/ distraction:

    I can listen to music
    Or call an old friend
    Water the plants
    Or make tea again

    I can doodle
    Or stare at the sky
    Or the colours of the peaks
    Climbing up high

    Yet doing has becomes
    All about not doing
    That one thing
