Stop holding on 

We cling on to words and feelings that once made us tingle inside, made us feel good inside 

We cling on to words that we know in one month time will feel like nothing anymore 

Yet we cling on to a mothers I love you, she hadn’t said it before hasn’t said it again

We cling onto fathers rummaging around stores looking for the Cheetos you love, he’s never done that before 

We cling onto smells, like when he hugged you for the first time 

We cling onto loved ones, knowing one day they’ll leave us, whether it’s through break ups or death 

Knowing clinging more means hurting more, yet we still hold on 

And here I am hurting again but I can’t let go
