Hold On

Hold On

written by: Kelli J Gavin



I always heard that when you find someone you love
You should hold on for dear life
But why?
Holding on to someone who doesn’t wish to be present seems futile
Keeping you here is selfish
Only for my benefit
Especially when I know your heart has moved on
You have stayed longer than necessary
You are loyal and duty bound
In the end you feel stuck
No longer wanting to be right where you are
If I am honest with myself, I became comfortable with your presence
You were someone to fill the void
It wasn’t really love, was it?
Now I believe you were a placeholder
For the one I will want to hold on to
