Let Me Go

By Michael Twum Appiah Adjei
Let Me Go
LISTEN AUG 24, 2019

I was to drown in the sea,

but you saved me

only to be killed by you

Oh! The sea tossed me

from one wave of misery to the other

But I liked that torture

than being in your arms

For the first time ever I felt something

that was real and genuine

I said my last prayer of joy

Cux I knew that was it - the end

The end of lies, wound and pain from you

Also the beginning of a bliss

and refreshing air they've talked about

from the other side of the world

where I was bubbly headed

I was prepared to meet death.

Just when I was taking my last breathe,

I met the oncoming arm - you

pulling me out

Aah! It's you again

It pains you to let me go

Yet you ain't ready to treat me right

Why not allow me escape in peace

Like Moana, the sea was calling me

I was to die in the sea

But from today, I'll die in your perilous arms

The day you saved me

was the day I truly died
