C & W

I could write you a thousand lines

Write you poems,

Make them rhyme.

 

I could list up a million more

Reasons why

You should be mine.

 

Clearly, we both know that

I should do one of the above

Because this time an

‘I love you’

Is simply not enough.

 

I realised that this time

I can’t write myself out of

This mess that I made.

 

I figured that this time

You won’t take me back or

Forget what I’ve said and done.

 

But don’t worry, dearie.

By the time you read this letter

 

I

will

be

gone.
