    LETTERS

    Vain interpretations
    tainting life as it unfolds
    Contradict the process of perception

    Lullabies and love songs
    placate longings in the soul
    cuts between appearance and exception

    Festering resentment
    of his wasted dedication
    leaves her void of all appreciation

    Cuts her down without a clue
    with hurtful things he says
    shuts the door to all communication

    Sweeping up the feathers
    that have fallen from her wings
    oblivious that she no longer flies

    He never truly listens
    when she speaks or when she sings
    The lyrics always dwell between goodbyes

    Then he reads the letter
    on the pillow that she left
    Realizing she is finally gone

    For time is wasted on the way
    to finding who we are
    Then sorting out the reasons
    things went wrong

    Love letters are not always
    about the ones we think we love
    Not always about the ones
    we know we hate

    Sometimes it's more about
    the self we're trying to ignore
    The person we're becoming
    while we wait
