The Letter

I write this letter to
The girl I loved before
All the pressure got to us
And I walked out the front door

You captured my attention
With those eyes so strange to me
Their color always seemed to change
But no one else would agree

The first hints of love
Came when I looked at you
All by your lonesome
But now it will be just us two

Our romance was blessed
By all that could be asked for
In a house just like heaven
Bright colors on each door

The love grew more and more
Till it burst out of our hearts
And destroyed all the bad
Left only our good parts

I think our downfall came
In the familiar form
Of an oncoming reality
Oh that ever brewing storm

Life caught up to you and me
As we tried so hard to run
And keep the love we had
From coming wholly undone

Life’s weight kept bearing down
Like a thousand heavy seas
Crashing on a cliffs rocks
It brought me to my knees

Now I’m a broke and bitter man
Not the one you'd loved before
I only hurt you more now
I can't do it anymore

That is why I left my love
I am nothing but a wieght
that pulls on your
strings of fate
