Let Go


Another sad song. Another fiction. Inspired by 3 doors down.



Someday you would want to remember me
And that day I would never know
Seems like, these are mere stories
Oh, let it be, for I don wanna know.


Night and day, for all these years…now
I spent my life for you.
In this world there is real and make believe
Where do you want to be?


I love you but I don know who I am
I have lost my face - space; and all I ever had
I love you, but I don know who I am
So let me go. Let me go.


No one knows what I go through
No, no please don’t claim you do.
Fearless smiles with no questioning
Are all I ever asked you for…


Night and day, for all these years…now
I spent my life for you.
In this world there is real and make believe
Where do you want to be?


I love you but I don know who I am
I have lost my face - space; and all I ever had
I love you, but I don know who I am
So let me go. Just Let me go.


Let me go.


And no matter how hard I try
There’s lil to do, and lot to hide
I know - you know
When all the pieces fall apart
And you look at me standing out

You know… you know you jus ought to let me go.

hey nivedhitha
good work...you have carefully stayed between little and no resemblance with the original one...
best being the last stanza
"lil to do and lot to hide"
and
"and you look at me standing out"
the author's touch i guess!!!

Let go of you,
I want to too,
The memories I hold,
Are treasures enough.
But, you asking me
To let you go now,
Is a farce,
For the only one
Who can let you go,
Is you,
For without you letting go,
I cannot be made to let go.

@ Nivedhitha
Just wanted to confirm if 'Wow!' was for the dude above my comment of the dude who wrote my comment.

Replying to the comment on Lightning (poetry physics n prolific writing! I am addicted! Mind if I tag u?)
Can poetry be classified as something apart from science, from humanity, from art, from anything, from nothing, in to a particular genre? If it can be, then yes, physics and poetry, if not, just poetry.

Nice to know that you like to read what I conjure. You are welcome here anytime

With regard to the tag, if you mean blogroll, I do not have any issue. Having seen your blogs (Yes I did read the Tamizh one, in Tamizh), I do not suppose your are the kind who is going to write the answers to twenty random pointless questions and then ask someone else to do the same (aka the game of Tag). I do not do the latter, I do do the blogroll.

Happy reading, and same to me too.

The 'wow' was for your comment! (was more like a post in itself :) )

and well,happy diwali!

In new light I see
Things visible to me.
In understanding, in peace
Letting go,
From inside
From you.
