This was written to forgive you.
This was the only way to let go all the hate and anguish.
This is to make sure you know what happened to the heart you chose to be done with.
And how the settling feeling that was once there became paranoid and schizophrenic.
For the eyes that saw beauty once, now see hopelessness and tiredness.
The lips that once spoke happiness are now dry and chapped.
And the arms that was once giving is now old and wrinkly.
No, this letter is not to guilt you.
This letter is meant to forgive you for leaving.
For giving up.
Because I want you to know that you ruined a life.
And you had made the remaining years unbearable.
And yes, this letter is for you. And I shall forgive you.
But I will not forget the pain I went through
especially the moment you left me hanging
you’re eyes in mine
you’re lips begging to mouth words
but only your last breath came out
and you left with a wound that will never heal
killing me in the inside even in this very day.
