A Letter That Won't Be Read

A Letter That Won't Be Read

A Poem by Katherine S.
"

I wanted to try a poem with an ABAB rhyme scheme.

"

I'm not sure how to tell you the words etched into my mind.
I'm not sure you'll see me at the end of the year.
I know neither of us were too kind.
I know now you were the reason for my fear.

You love, will always have a special place in this heart.
You love, held each emotion by a string.
I will not forget, all the ways you played a part.
I will not forget, you made yourself the king.

But I will rise as the queen of my own kingdom.
But I am not sure you see, life can only be temporary.
You will only see me as fearsome.
You will know then my existence is not necessary.

Sing me a pretty lullaby.
Sing me the sonnet of the wretched.
Your guilt can then only multiply.
You're too late, you've left me dead and infected.

I relate how a person could break your heart and leave you saddened. But I think what I love the most is how it won't let you define you. That in the end you'll rise and pick yourself up and he will only stay watch you grow into something great. Its a nice message and I think we all can use a reminder every now and then. Super groovy poem.

Thank you. :)
I didn't understand how the title in this matched the piece.
None the less it was a soulful, heartfelt write.
Full of depth and emotion.
Keep writing :)

Your welcome :)
There are some very strong lines in this poem that make your point loud and clear. Nicely done.

Thanks. :)
Ash is right, you don't deserve someone who plays with your heart or leads you on a string. Sure, you won't forget him, but it's time to move on. Everyone deserves a proper partner who respects them and not run them into the dirt or make them feel worthless. No love survives that way. Be your own queen without him being the king. You'll grow stronger that way!

Thank you. :) It was just inspired by a story I read though.

Chance? You need to forgot about him, he's a piece of s**t. He hurt you to many times, in unspeakable ways. He never deserved your love.
