keep the letters.

the letters

handwritten, desperate

pleas i handed you

you didn’t even care

enough to read


you kept the letters

those muddled

sleepless nights

drowning in anxiety

words that will condemn me


i wish i’d never talked to you

on those school steps

when you softly lied

and i believed you

because i wanted to


no one will love you

you don’t have a soul

sold it into slavery for

drugs, rock + roll

and your eyes are blackened


keep the letters

they are a past

i’d rather forget

but i hope you never forget

the soul you tried to corrupt
