"Do you know how much I wish I could go back in time and change so many things? The first one is you."


I wrote 'I love you' in a letter,
And sealed it in an envelope.
I put it in the mailbox,
And sent away all hope.

I took a picture of us,
And put it in the fire.
I watched it burn to ashes,
And watched the flames grow higher.

I told you that I loved you,
And you said the same.
I tell you now that we are through,
'Cause I don't play this game.

The author's comments:
This recently happened to me and poetry is the only way I can truely let out my feelings. I hate that all my heartache turns into the best poems I've ever written. At least that's what all my friends think.
