    ** an oldie but goodie**

    I’m writing you this love letter
    Straight from the heart
    Saying goodbye the only way I know how
    I’m writing to your soul
    Cause your heart tuned me out long ago
    A last ditch effort
    To capture your attention
    And maybe
    Just maybe
    Your Love
    I’m writing you this love letter
    To show how much
    I care
    To show
    How hard I am willing to try
    To show how much
    I can sacrafice
    I’m writing you this love letter
    To say
    Goodbye
    You see
    I’m writing you this love letter
    To show you
    How hard
    And good
    And loyal
    And….
    I’m writing you this love letter
    Because my fingers have frozen
    On the pad of the phone
    I’m writing you this love letter
    Because my pen can say
    “I Love you”
    I’m writing you this love letter
    Because my lips can only form the word goodbye
    I’m
    Writing
    You this
    Love letter
    With tears falling from my eyes
    Don’t mind the tear stains
    The words are words you’ve heard before
    You see
    I’m writing you this love letter
    To whisper words of love
    Oh who am I kidding
    This isn’t a letter of love
    But a letter of desperation
    You see
    If I can love you enough for the both of us ……..
    I’m writing you this love letter
    In hopes
    That you will write me one too

    This was a masterful piece, because I felt the pain as strongly as I felt the love. Wow, talented poetess.
