    In my locker, I found a letter
    It was from my girl, it read she longer wanted to be together.
    She wrote we needed some time apart,
    but I'll always have a special placein her heart.
    All our love, thrown away in just seven paragraphs.
    All i could do was watch her travel a new path.
    We been together for so long.
    Breakin-up now seem so wrong.
    In the letter she surrendered her love.
    So I freed her like a dove.
    I lost more than a lover, I lost a bestfriend.
    I thought we would be together until the very end.
    She said we shared destiny.
    She always bought out the best in me.
    From her I expected better,
    but true color shines in a break-up letter.

    Break-ups hurt, but the good thing is that life doesn't end.

    Some relationships are just practice for the real thing.

    Keep your head up.

    Its not that the true color shines... maybe her bravery went as far as the lines...
    When you can't say it... they say to lay it... down on paper...
    nice though... like the flow of it..

    Heart wrenching...

    the worst way is in a letter...
    feel the emotion in this flow
    and yes the true color does
    eventually show...

    but hang on to the person
    that was at there best

    the person
    she brought out of you
    ....will inevitably attract
    someone else at their best!

    this was real!
