1. It's painful.
  2. Gut wrenching painful.
  3. When you wake up in the morning, a little short of breath, and the reality hits you, hard in the face:
  4. You have to let them go.
  5. Maybe together you'd be wonderful.
  6. Or maybe together you'd fall apart.
  7. You know their deepest darks and for that, you have to let them go.
  8. Friend, lover, family...
  9. I just, have to let you go.
  10. I know maybe one day we will be.
  11. Or maybe one day we can stand together in our apartness without being broken.
  12. But for now, I have to let you go.
  13. And it hurts.
