To let go

Before I die
Promise me this
You’ll love her more
Than our very last kiss.

    You’ll love her more/Than our very last kiss
    Hmm…does that imply there was a lack of love, a lack of passion, maybe. A last kiss because it was an understood farewell kiss.
    You provoke more questions, Ms Rosebud.

    • I like all of your questions as I hadn’t at all thought along those lines.
      I especially like your idea of an understood farewell kiss. You’ve gotten me inspired by my own work, Andy! Thanks!

      • Andy says:

        In being a farewell kiss it is therefore a kiss that can be bettered by a kiss born of love, passionate, heightened, and lasting, love. In being a farewell kiss, it must have a hint of regret, of failure even. Maybe.
        And I owed you a bit of inspiration ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Couldn’t agree with you more. Bittersweet those farewell kisses…

      • Andy says:

        Is that why you left Sweden-chapped lips in the winter ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Last time I left Sweden, I did leave a lover behind. Well, turns out he wasn’t much of a love, nor lover, but someone. Gosh, it’s hard putting a label on people sometimes.

      • Andy says:

        When you leave-you really leave don’t you!
        Out of the bed out of the house out of the country ๐Ÿ™‚
        Life is a lesson, as they say, I’m sure you’ve learnt a few things, yes?

      • Oh yes, but I’m getting better at not leaving so abruptly, and going so far. Although when I leave, I leave. There’s no going back. When it’s over, it’s over.
        I’m finding every day a lesson in one way or another. I think that’s what makes life worth living, a never ending learning experience (both of course good and bad).

      • Andy says:

        Yeah I can go with that, the never going back bit. And despite our intentions, we always take something from those relationships with us. Internally.
        I’m glad you see an improvement in yourself-but it’s not necessary that you need to improve-we are who we are. We remain true to ourselves, although sometimes we moderate/adapt it a little for others. I can see you growing emotionally and also outwardly-you know far better than I how much travelling is adding to your life experience.
        When I say I see you growing-I know it’s limited what
        I know as we don’t actually know each other outside of this media, so we must be limited, but I like to think we can get a sense of someone still. Especially when they lay themselves bare with words, like you do.

      • Yes, I agree with you.
        When it comes to the growing, I’ve grown in the sense of being more honest to myself and more open towards others. I’ve gotten to know my limits very well, especially emotionally, and so I see things more clearly and quickly now than I did just a few years back.
        My writing and public display of it has been one step in outwardly growing. To own up to who I am and what I’m capable of. If that makes any sense? ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Andy says:

        It does. I remember you once telling me that you found it difficult to show your emotion, but through your writing you are doing just that. Slowly but surely, revealing more of the hidden you, showing more. That makes perfect sense Erica-you are both growing and empowering yourself. That should breed confidence. It is definitely cathartic for you. I think you feel that.

      • One day at a time! Feels real good ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Andy says:

        One day at a time, yes ๐Ÿ™‚

    That’s quite the message, You are letting go and setting yourself free at last right?

  3. Well, it’s interesting how you’ve interpreted this poem. Both of the Andy’s ๐Ÿ™‚
    I don’t like revealing my thoughts behind my words, as you both know, but I actually wrote this based on a woman who is dying and her last wish is for her lover to find true love again. When rereading it I can see where you’re coming from, especially based on the title of the poem. I must say I like both interpretations.

  4. words4jp says:

    I am not certain how to interpret this one – I see it in two ways. One being she is trying to convince herself there is no longer something left when in doubt there is. And two being a snarky way of letting him know you are both completely finis. I say snarky from the point of view of having been told by ex three that I was truly the one and though he found someone else and he is getting married that he still loves me and always will. I will always be someone very special to him. I personally so not care to be. Because if I was her, I wouldn’t want to know that. Oh dear, I am not certain if I am making any sense. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • I think you can definitely look at it from both ways which you’ve described. Whatever appeals to you the most works for me ๐Ÿ™‚
      Your ex #3 sounds like a very dishonest person when it comes to love. I completely agree with you, I wouldn’t want to know that either. How can a person be like that? Especially when it comes to marriage, I mean, marriage is one of life’s biggest commitments – how can one commit when claiming to love someone else?
      I’m glad he’s an ex of yours! You’re clearly far more honest than him and deserve a million times better!
