I wrote this letter,
And sealed it.
“This is the closure
That I need.
Our diverse lifestyles
And the unthinkable pain
That you’ve suffered
Is too much for me
To imagine as significant.
I’m sorry, and I hope I can
Stress this enough for you
To understand.
I hope my message is clear;
I can’t do this anymore,
I can’t be the reason
For your inevitable pain.”
I knew that
He’d be hurt,
I knew that
He’d be wrapped in this feeling
That never truly existed.
I thought that
He wouldn’t see this coming.
I burned the letter;
Maybe he’ll never know.
