The Saddest Love Letter

The Saddest Love Letter

A Poem by Javan
"

Something I wrote on the train to work one day... It's about someone moving country away from a girl he loves, but doesn't feel the same about him...

"

I have so much to tell you…
Things that my lips would never dream of saying, but my eyes would betray in an instant.
Things that I think whenever I see your face, smiling, that same smile.
Things that I feel, but hide shyly.
Things that I know I shouldn’t feel.

This was my fault… But still… What if…
And now, as you smile back at me, happy moments immortalised in a frame,
I know it’s too late.
So this is my last creation… Words of emotion captured for you and only you, as I prepare to say goodbye…

One last time…

And prepare to become just another fond memory, another forgotten friend.
Just that guy, from that place, from that time.

This is so sad but I love the second line and how it draws attention to lips and eyes and almost personifies them.

You are welcome!
This is excellent. The last two lines perfectly encapsulate the fleeting and fading nature of life and love. Very well written.

Very nicely expressed. Sad, but then how could we experience happiness without first knowing sadness? I enjoyed reading this, thank you.

Just another 26 year old with an over-active imagination and a half-decent vocabulary. I started writing just to help me get things off of my chest and out of my mind. It's an escape for me. Been.. more..
