To My Love

My Love,

I am leaving you
This letter
In the hopes that you may read;
My forgetting you
Is better
Than forgiving your deceit.

When I think of you
If ever
I’ll recall with painful ease
Empty promises
I’ve never
Had fulfilled, and every dream…

…you are leaving with
Though they all belong to me.
And your memory
I’ll sever
With the truth and watch it bleed…

…through this single piece
Of paper
I’m setting us both free
From a lie and a
Of a love that should not be.

You may think yourself
So clever
But soon, my love, you’ll see.
No secret is
I regret you – you’ll regret me.

Happy Valentine’s Day
