"Some of the best and most beautiful things cannot be seen or even touched, they must be felt with the heart." Helen Keller


In your letter
You said
I hate you

In your letter
You said
Never again

In your letter
You said
I hate you

And I choose to remember
The words that you say

In reply
I said
I loved you

In reply
I said
I'm sorry

In reply
I said
I heard you

And I choose to remember
The words that you say

In your letter
You broke me

In your letter
You let me fall

In your letter
You broke me

And I felt your anger
And I let go

In reply
I fixed myself

In reply
I tried to fly

In reply
I fixed myself

And I felt your anger
And I let go

But your letter
Does not say
You never loved me

But your letter
Does not say
You do not care

But your letter
Does not say
You never loved me

But I read you loud and clear
You want no part of me now

In your letter
You said
Never again

In your letter
You said
Good-bye

In your letter
You said
Never again

So I wrote my last letter
To a Judas with a kiss

In reply
I said
Forever

In reply
I said
Tearful good-byes

In reply
I said
Forever

Forever will I remember you
Forever to hold your secrets
Forever to hold your lies
Forever to love you far away

I read you loud and clear
But you need to read me too

I was young
I was in love
I fell from grace
I fell from your eyes

So I read you loud and clear
But you need to read me too

The angel with one wing hovering above the fire's blaze.
You were my harbor in the storm of your eyes.
You were my twin in a silver-violet storm of mist and anger.
You held my memories where others held pity.
You held my fragmented heart through the cuts and blood.
You were my everything.
But I was never enough.

Like your mother.
I held you up through the storm in your heart.
I held your words inside me, swirling with pain.
I carefully guarded your heart from the pain.
I kept you alive for you, for me.
I revered you in the way only I could.
Where there were men, you stood among as king.
And I was blessed to ever have been lucky enough to love you.

I read you loud and clear
But you have to read me too

For all I've said
For all I've done
I loved you
I love you still

For everyday that goes by
For every minute I am apart from you
For everything we ever had
I love you
But you are gone
Forever this time

For in your letter
You said
Never again

And in reply
I said
Forever

I'll wait for you for forever
When dreams become dust
And clouds become mist
When memories become a picture
Unfamiliar to my eyes
When thoughts are forgotten
On that rampant train of thought

I'll wait.


The author's comments:
To one person who is so far away, he may as well be dead. Which is what he wants anyways. I wish you well in every endeavor. I wish you well, you Judas, you priest with a double-edged tongue and two faces, you angel who have so been wronged. I wish you forever, that it be yours and time be all you ever dreamed it be.
I wish you well.
"Hey you! Watch me fly." I say.
"You'll never make it." You say.
"That's what you think..." I say.
"No, it's what I know." You say.
"Then you know wrong, because as long as I have you, I can fly to the moon and back." I say.
Your pleasant, husky laugh.
My silence.
"____?" I say.
"Yeah?" You say.
"I love you..." I say.
"I love you too. More than you could possibly know." You say.
I smile shyly and you grab my hand.
"Forever..." I say.
You kiss me.
A promise sealed in time.
