Angst Over You

letting go always brings me to my lowest, saddest point

it may be likened to a feeling of an abandoned kid
at the prospects of not seeing his father return from war
it's very much unlike swallowing a bitter pill 
where, after a blink or two, the bitterness leaves 
as water empties the glass  

if only i can fly like a bird
be a pilot or an FA
or disguise as a stuff on your carry-on bag
there will be no room for this agony
as there are no goodbyes, no letting go
no sulking in endless sorrowing

it is not a big deal after all
but to someone who truly loves
it is bigger than the world itself
but one has to go in order to come back
ShadowMan takes comfort in that
nevertheless this will pass
all shall be well
all shall be well
