let ‘em go

side of the road under a bridge

as the rain fell all around

the questions came

is this what you do?

this is how it is to be?

& I was thinking

if you got doubts unease

let ‘em go

she shivered

but did not come close

it was about then I knew

she’d not be sticking around

after the rain stopped

as it always does

she got back on the bike

as we headed south

& I was thinking

maybe a hundred

or a thousand miles from now

she’d be hesitating

& I’d be letting go

One thought on “let ‘em go
