Earlier today I opened up one of your letters
Thinking it would give me hope & make me feel better
I decided to read the letter & the way you dedicated your life to me
How you told me that one day you wished you could be my wife you see
I looked at your picture & artwork
Thinking it would maybe make my heart work
But you broke it along time ago
Man did you put on a great show!
You whispered sweet lies & tempting statements
Promises you broke & I locked my heart away in a basement
I knew it would never be the same again
I always knew I would feel pain again
Will I ever remain sane again?
You love to play the same games again!
But I promise you I will never fall victim to your plots & schemes
Your false pretenses of thoughts & dreams
I even held you down when you were locked up hoping it would all come to fruition
But hey who the hell am I fooling I had my own intuitions
But now this chapter of my life is said & done; I put the letter back in the drawer
I put the picture away too & no more pain will I store
One day I will finally let go & move on in my heart & mind
One day maybe, just maybe one another our souls will find
