False Memories

You asked me to tell you
when I last let go
when I last held on to the masks
so that no one will know

that deep inside I’m empty,
and my soul has known no peace,
inside this shell is a woman
in dire need of sweet release

from the demons that keep her captive
even long after they are gone
from the words of those she onced believed in,
telling her her worth’s akin to none

so instead, let me tell you a story
of the last time i let go –
it will be a lie, a false memory
that only i will know.

Daily Prompt – False
