LET GO. | By: Terry Collett | | Category: Poem - Life Bookmark and Share


Let go said Bettina
I don’t want to live

any longer but he
wouldn’t let go of

her hand and she
hung over the side

of the roof of the high
building  looking up

at him and then looking
down at the street a

long way below let go
she bellowed I don’t

want this world any
more I have had enough

but still he held on trying
to ring for help on his

cell phone looking over
the edge at the woman

hanging over the side
her hair blowing about

in the wind her skirt being
lifted up and down revealing

pink panties her eyes large
and dark as plums let me

go she bellowed louder I want
to die but all he could say

(his voice being carried off
on the wind’s wings) was why?
