    I wrote your name
    On a piece of paper
    First
    Middle
    And last
    Your number
    Your date of birth
    Your likes
    And your dislikes
    Your hopes and dreams for the future
    The things you liked to do
    In and out
    Of bed
    Your favorite color
    Your favorite food
    The story
    Of how you got that scar on the back of your head
    The dimple in your left cheek
    The mole behind your right ear
    I wrote it all down
    Nice and neat
    I folded it in three
    I placed it in a fresh white envelope
    Sealed it nice and tight
    I placed that envelope
    In the pretty silver tray you bought me for
    My 21st birthday
    Found the matches from that restaurant
    You took me to the other night
    That night you told me you didn’t love me
    That there was someone else
    The night you told me that I
    Just wasn’t enough
    I burned that envelope
    That I sealed nice and tight
    And placed on that pretty silver tray
    Watched it burned down to the last
    Flickering
    Flutter
    And then a teardrop
    Distinguished the last dying flame

    this piece was felt for real
    cause this has been done on my part
    i thought no big deal
    to express how you make me feel
    to turn the steering wheel
    and get off on the next exit
    if it was meant to be
    then i would still be vibing off the
    connection that we both established
    but now i must be truely be manish
    and banish
    this no love situation
    off the face of my creation
    and drive on to the
    next gas station

    this scibe was felt more than you know...
    peace
