The Letter I Can't Send by alhajisindodo(m): 9:40pm On Apr 03, 2017
I bared my soul for you see
My hope and my flaws
Laid it all up and hid nothing from you
The deepest darkest corners of my mind
You saw the worst and the best of me
And nothing seemed to scare you
I silently wished you were the one who'd finally make the pain of being different go away
I didn't have to lie or to change who i was to feel accepted
Whenever i laid in between your legs with my head on your chest it felt like home
You were home
you were your own person
Strong willed and passionate
I was crazy about the idea of you
Like me you weren't perfect too
I saw the cracks in your armour
Saw how deep your scars ran
But i loved you all the same
'Cuz i said to myself, anyone who could love me with all my faults deserved to be loved a thousand times more.
So I gave you everything I had and didn't hold back
So you can understand my shock when you decided to leave
I've been up countless nights trying to Fathom why
Did I get too close for comfort ?
Did I love too hard ?
Was I asking for too much ?
Was I too dependent on you ?
Did i show you too much ?
Now I'm done asking questions
Like a wound that won't just close
My soul is begging to be healed and rid of you
I see the need to become better now
Moving on is hard for me but I know it is important
Its all part of the process, One that can't be skipped
In this pain I have become stronger
And I have you to thank for that
I pray you find love in your next endeavors
I pray you find the answers you left to seek
I pray you eventually find closure like I hope to find soon
Love F.
