You Are Letting Me Go?…

[Inspired by this post.  I do not know the author, so I hope she accepts my apology in advance for using her post in such a manner. – Owen]

= = = = = | = = = = =

You say you don’t deserve me, and
That I deserve much more:
But yet it’s only you I’ve ever wanted.

And so it is your fault, but it is
Me that’s out the door.
I must admit it – for all of your vaunted

Honesty, I have to say, that I am not convinced.
Except for one thing:
That you don’t want me.

So write me off, unable to stem your dissatisfaction:
Condemn the man you say
You’re setting free

  1. Thanks for writing this in response to my post. It’s good to read a different perspective. Tho this really hit me to the core. 😔

  2. “You deserve better.” I know it all too well. I like your nuanced take on the various feelings that get triggered.
