The Letter

Dear Me,

I didn’t mean to hurt you

And lead you down this path,

But my emotions were all tangles up

In thoughts about the past.

I didn’t mean to jeopardize

The future you had planned,

In the heat of the moment,

It just got out of hand.

I could say it was a mistake

That won’t be made again,

But I can never be sure

Of anything again.

Anyway, I have to go now

It is time to face the truth

And hope that things will fall in place

Not crash right through the roof.

So, I write to ask forgiveness

And hope you will comply

Because I can’t live without you,

Signed lovingly, Myself and I

Put It All In The Past (FOWC)

Will I ever know the truth
Especially now that you’re gone
You would always talk about her
And you often worked late
It was easy for me to suspect
Those conversations were not all innocent
And those late nights were not lonely
But I think I need to let it go
Forgive you if you did
Dismiss it if you didn’t
It doesn’t change much
Just holds my heart in anguish
And gives birth to useless thoughts
So where ever you are now
Rest easy
The past is over and I can finally
Release you

Can I Borrow An Eraser

There was something about him

He had such unbelievable charm

He was winsome in a special way

That sucked me in and held me tight

I could not shake the way I felt

No matter how hard I tried to forget

His smile haunted my dreams

His touch tugged at my desires

But his innocent was just for show

He was wise beyond his years

And he played me from the start

Using up the love I had inside

And leaving me with nothing

But broken hearted memories

And a past I wish I could erase

I Will Never Forget

There was once a time

When I wanted to pursue you

Back then all I wanted

Was to be a part of your life

Then you put up walls

And made it more than clear

You only used me

For temporary gain

You were not who I thought

You left me used and hurt

Years later now

I forgive you

But can never forget

The feelings that drove me

To pursue the man

I thought I knew…

Automatically In The Past

It’s an automatic response;

I hear the slurred words,

I smell the alcohol on your breath

And I instantly tense.

 

I remember those nights;

He stumbled down the stairs,

Breaking the window

And I am instantly afraid.

 

I know you’re not him;

He drank more,

He lost control

And I should not compare you to him.

 

But it’s an automatic response;

You drink,

I remember

And the hurt begins again.
