Adrift, moored to nothing,

listing gently
I loll in the pool,

back arched, nose like a reed,
sound becomes weightless
with my heels

held like Achilles
I let go, fall without form,
look up to the mirror-distorted
surface and dissolve.

I am free from
double-crossing flesh
and bothersome need.
No outside, no inside,
no then but now.

And let the darkness fear our light.

It sounds like you are trying to "let go". I think that was one of the healthiest things I ever learned to do. Not let go in the sense of "forgive" or "forget", but in the sense of focusing on who I am now and what I need in the present and future.

Much love,

Nobody living can ever stop me
As I go walking my freedom highway.
Nobody living can make me turn back:
This land was made for you and me.
(Woody Guthrie)

This gives voice to the feeling I get when I isolate myself and feel safe. No one to betray me. Just me and silence, my best friend.

I'm a freeman now, his authority's dead
no pain monger lies in my comfortable bed!
