Bitter

Goodbyes and tears
Leave a bitter aftertaste.
The only way to prevent
The cloying bitterness
Is to untie your ties,
Extract yourself from tangibility.
Be unattached.
Loosen the strength of your bonds,
Distance yourself from them.
This won’t make it easier,
But at least the bitterness
Will not be your undoing.

    U should unattach yourself from those ties which suffocate you but not those ties that means a lot to you and loosening them is not an option to get over bitterness of separation that may be only distance based . πŸ™‚

    You should unattached yourself from those ties which suffocate you but not those with whom separation seems unbearable. Maybe the separation is only distance based or some petty issue which you come to regret later. πŸ™‚

      Distances never mean separation to me. In fact, some of my best friends are not the ones who live with me, whom I see each day. They are the ones who live miles away, but are always there.
