Dear Sarah,
I’m writing a letter to you,
In my head
From across the room
Don’t worry, I wont send it
You’ll never read this
You’ll never know I was thinking this
You could never read me
So well as you thought you could.

Dear Sarah,
Wishing you where here
Sitting close beside me
We are miles away… miles away…
Sitting in this awkward silence
Alone together
While our friends talk
And laugh
And play.

You don’t see me
You don’t know me
So well as you think you do
I’d really like you to
I like you
But you’re not so interested
Not so interested as me
I’m sending you a postcard
From where I wish that you could be

Enclosed in this letter,
You can not read
From my heart to yours
I send to you, the last piece of me
Worth having anymore
Keep it, break it, love it, hate it
But please don’t forget it

Dearest Sarah,
I’ve written this letter, too many times
How silly, that I wont send it
It might not matter
But here it is,
I love you.

There is no Sarah, I just use the name alot in my poetry.

Take it for what it is or just leave it alone. Don't make me disable comments.

Wow-ed away! I really like this poem, I can relate to it, the feeling of having much to say to someone, but choosing not to.. then actually doing so [then i utterly regretted it]. . . .
. . . . I would comment, using better words than "wow-ed away", but my brain is feeling rather dead today :bleh:
SilverSugar Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2008  Hobbyist General Artist

Great poem, really. I like it a lot.
Keronu Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2008
I've been meaning to comment on this for a long time. I really love it a lot. One of those it makes me sad but I love it for that reason, I guess 'cause I relate so well to it and it releases those emotions.
