The letter I'll never send

The letter I'll never send,
Would calmy ask you why
You broke my heart in two,
And told my love Good-bye.

If i ever sent this letter,
It would sweetly state,
You tangled up your destiny,
And interrupted fate.

The letter i will not write,
Would casually inquire,
How can you live without me,
I was your one desire!

If you recieved this letter,
It would politely say,
You need me in your life now,
You can't go on this way.

The letter I'll never send,
Would then be briskly signed;
"Your one and only love-"
You know -- The one you left behind!

This is a poem i wrote when i went out with this one girl i was madly in love with on Halloween, two days after her birthday, and when we broke up at 2 in the morning on New Years day...So sad...

This poem is great. I don't have the experience of a breakup in my life, but i can only imagine. I have wanted something so bad and never got it. The situation was very similar, about being left behind. The fact you added an author comment real hits home the meaning of your poem. And the fact you are a guy, makes it even better, to me anyway. Great job.

This is a really amazing poem. I just went through a break up and it says exactly what it feels like.
