I burned your letters
in a fit of sanity
I cannot take back

I like this one alot – “not taking back” the sanity of finally letting go captures the tumult the relationship must have had
thanks – that's what I was shooting for
elegantly said…I would like to have more fits of sanity than the other kind.
Love love love love love. Mad love. Did it once myself.
I was thinking about that passage in the Bible about putting away childish things. It struck me that even when we should discard the remnants of our less than healthy experiences and habits, the parting still triggers a measure of regret sometimes.
At least that's been my experience.
Thank you. I haven't done this in a while, but it's probably the sort of letting go I could use more of.
