"Let You Go"

I like the passionate expression of this poem.  - poetheart 05/09/01

  I can hold your hand
  look in your eyes
  and be able to understand
  know what you are to say
  even before you speak
  even feel your heart
  before it starts to beat
But now
  as I hold your hands
  I feel nothing but coldness
  as I look in your eyes
  they seem distant and senseless
  as I try to read your mind
  your thoughts I can't begin to comprehend
  as I try to feel your heart's beat
  it reverberates nothing but pretense
I won't start to ask questions
my mind bears no confusion
for every logic, every reason in this I knew
I just wish to hear it straight from you
I can take anything from you
  but silence and lies
I can bear anything so long as you try
for it's evident, it's no longer me
I see in your eyes
but someone who loves you as much as I
I'm not foolish as to make you stay
for I see in you a tortured pain
Give me a chance and to you I will show
that I love you...
so much I'm willing
to let you go
