How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world. ~Anne Frank

This night, daunting and haunting, full of unwanted thoughts of you.
Reminiscing unwantedly of what we used to have.
The dawn will bring you to me again, in a whole new light.
I don’t know what will happen, I only know I’m not ready for you.

You bent me, you broke me, and you didn’t even know it.
We parted, I cried, you didn’t even realize.
You forgot me, I held on to every memory of you.
What will happen tomorrow, when I see you again?

Please don’t touch me, or smile at me, or try to bring up the past.
I hurt, I ache, you feel nothing, you don’t understand.
On this foreboding eve, I know not what comes tomorrow,
All I know is I still bleed, and you still don’t know.

A cleansing letter on the night before seeing the boy who broke my heart without even knowing he did it.
