A letter to say...


A letter to say I give up because you put me down.
A letter to say thanks for the pain it just made me sane.
A letter to say forget it even though you never bothered to think about it.
A letter to say you were loved, you will be loved and you're loved just never again by me.
A letter to say you look perfect, you act perfect but your reflection gives me a different point of view of you.
A letter to say I'll never be over you I'll just be above you.
A letter to say why I did what I did and ask for forgiveness even though you're far from perfect yourself.
A letter to say come and take a closer look before you decide you hate me because I don't wear the coolest clothes or listen to your type of music or because I like the same sex.
A letter to say don't be so narrow minded.

    rhythmic and the feeling of boredom with the persistent comments of other narrow minded people really comes through. the rhythm is my favourite though, it gives it a pulse and as a result blood, breath and life come with it. nice.
