Can't Let Go

September 18, 2012

As I look into the despair of your eyes
Your hands flailing as you fall
I hold onto our severed ties
And try to catch you before you hit the ground

You're slipping between my fingers
These strings are popping
You're tyring to get away
While I'm trying to keep you from dropping

This is it I already know
But I can't seem to let you go
I should just let the strings fly
And tell you goodbye

I want people to interpret it as losing someone you love by death or other means, not just boyfriend girlfriend, but friends and family too.
