Where love lets go

Time stood still and called you out,
demanded that you stay and listen carefully,
that reason might then sure and truly see,
we had cause to bring an end to doubt,
and so ensure the future stood this bout,
of pure destructive power, you and me,
wherein relationship we now did drown;
with you revealed as thoughtless lout,
and I as helpless victim in your power:
your choice to set me sure and truly free,
gift liberation from these stormy seas,
that both of us can find some other path,
to walk through life without eternal chains,
where love lets go, releases both our hearts.

  1. Sometimes releasing those shackles is the only way.. the twist in the last lines bring that release:

    If you love someone -- set them free.
