THE ART OF LETTING GO

by Felix Fojas

for Joanna Allas

 

In Love you must be

A master in the art

Of letting go and dispel

All green shades and grades

Of jealousy and hate.

Do not put your beloved

In a golden cage,

A mechanical bird

Singing you paeans of love

That ring hollow and untrue.

Under no circumstance

Sculpt her into a proud

Masterpiece of your own

Shiny marble ego.

Love for her sake and let go.
