Leaf Me Alone
Let me go on my way
not looking back in sadness
but standing on my own feet now
and looking out towards the future.
Design my own life
one without the past
one separate from the us
that I hung my heart on for so long.
I walk alone
crunching through the fallen leaves
bits of memories which I crush beneath my heels.
Watching leaves fall in real time
Letting go of all that was
to begin again.
