All These People I Let In – Written Monday 12th October 2009 (Aged 34)

All These People I Let In

all these people
that i have let into my life
i let them go
to drift like an escaped kite
one that flies,
high above the trees
and into the sky
i do not know why
but i feel better
and somehow relieved
i am not sure if in me,
they ever believed
but that is fine
no problems exist
i do not witness a stampede
so i guess i am not missed
and it leaves me –
with those that truly matter
those that care
how could things be better
when i know they are there
