Never got it to you

Never got it to you

A Poem by em810

There’s so many things I’d like to say

But they just simmer in my mind

Don’t know what I want to find

But I’ve been sitting numb nearly every day

Thinking but not really feeling anyway

 

let tears fall down my face

the truth is I’m delicate like lace

You just chose not to see

you’ve left scars inside of me

You’ve broken my heart

And I’ve torn myself apart

Hoping I could make you better

Instead I wrote a letter

Never got it to you

 

I can’t deny we’ve had our times

We’ve had the good days but they grow sour

And then I end up drowning at some late hour

 

I can’t keep up with your addiction

it’s caused our family so much friction

I can’t help but think that it’s all me

I’m breaking young why can’t you see

 

let tears fall down my face

the truth is I’m delicate like lace

You just chose not to see

you’ve left scars inside of me

You’ve broken my heart

And I’ve torn myself apart

Hoping I could make you better

Instead I wrote a letter

Never got it to you

 

Why can’t you realize

What hurts most is the lies

You try to protect me from my fears

But you’ve caused the pain all these years

 

let tears fall down my face

the truth is I’m delicate like lace

You just chose not to see

you’ve left scars inside of me

You’ve broken my heart

And I’ve torn myself apart

Hoping I could make you better

Instead I wrote a letter

Never got it to you
