I heard something once-

“No one has a firmer hold on you

than a person who doesn’t want you,

but will not let you go”

And I was happy to know

That I’m not experiencing that alone

But what I can’t help but wonder

Is why won’t they let go?


Everytime I feel like I’ve let go

They wrap their words around me and pull me back

Everytime I ask if they want more

They’ll look at me like I’m crazy

Everytime I say I’m done

My phone will ring

And I know, I know

I should block them, delete them,

Forget them

But it’s easier said than done


I just need you to let me let you go
