This is another one of my personal favorite poems I've done. As opposed many others, it focuses on the letting go process instead of dwelling on the pain, which is more important to me.

I put you in a box today
All the items stowed away
Every picture, there to stay
I piled it together
Safe from the weather
Every single lost letter
Baubles and trinkets; Odds and ends
Vague reminders of past time spent
I never want it back, here or then
You will remain on my closet’s top shelf
Above all my shirts, ties, and belts
Until I burn you, finally freeing myself
You’ll be put in a box someday
By another man, another way
Lowered into the ground to stay
I don’t care to be there for the show,
When you’re laid to rest, because I know
I'm so happy I finally let you go
