I’m writing you a letter.
It’s a secret; don’t tell.
Maybe it will be better
now that you cannot yell.
The same tears fill my eyes.
A lump grows in my throat.
I can’t help but cry
for the dear heart you broke.
My love, how you mangle
those you hold so dear.
I’m no longer entangled
and I see oh so clear.

o ym gosh, this poem is amzing, but thats not why im commenting, i mean all your poems are amazing and youve heard that so much, but you live in Clifton? Clifton, VA? I coulld't believe it! I live here to, I go to school just around the corner. I would love to know where it was you went to school  or work but im guessing your still in school.
