Arms Up

poem by: Lourdes Luna
Written on Aug 24, 2016

Letting go of someone who hurt you is
an empty feeling. 
I had so much love for you
unconditional
You knew that
so you thought I’d never give up
But here I am with my arms up
knowing I have to release you.
Finally
I have to do the thing that has been the most frightening
but the most necessary
Why did you have to ruin us?
Why did you have to take us here?
My arms are up
Please, leave.
