Emotions Live Inside A Letter

Long lasting words

Etched on each line

Timeless moments

Tailor made for one

Everlasting thoughts

Releasing emotion into one’s heart.

A Letter Of Heartbreak

Last night, I thought we were a perfect match,

yet the sunset of another day

echoes the truth.


Tomorrow will arrive

with more lies spoken from your tongue,

the ones I will pretend to understand

as I fade off into the distance.

There's Nothing I Can Do

Sweetie,

I long to hear your voice whisper

those sweet nothings into my ear

that make my heart feel so alive,

but I found out I’m not the only one.


So, I’ll be packing my bags

first thing in the morning,

no worries though, my heart is breaking too

but that’s the way the old ball bounces,

leaving my heart to feel empty without you.


There’s nothing I can do

to change your recent attitude,

so, I bid you farewell

hoping it was well worth it.

Once upon a time I was falling in love but now I'm only falling apart.

There's nothing I can do, a total eclipse of the heart.

Perfect Sunset

You are the perfect sunset

to my sunrise,

you make me feel like I’m a flower in heaven

embracing love in the beautiful garden of Eden.


Feeling your clutch upon my body

has been the most wonderful moment of my life,

erasing any pain like a magical illusion.


I wish to carry it with me

throughout each and every second of the day

from now until eternity.

To send a letter is a good way to go somewhere without moving anything but your heart.
