25 Years Of Writing to You

The day we met
I knew you were the one
The man I would love
Making the woman I would become

Time has passed quickly
But my words appear in various places
My thoughts of us
Over the years, between us, empty spaces

Things I couldn't tell you
Dreams you already knew
Memories forgotten
But still how much I love you

Begging for forgiveness
Jotted on an old bill
Dying with our child
I could only wish to me it was willed

Mistakes of the past
Written on many pages
Lusting for what we had
In all of life's stages

Poems of hatred
Physically ruined for life
More so apparently
Only when I'm your wife

Published poems easily explain
Our years apart
More letters on napkins
Hoping you have a heal heart

A quarter of a century
Has taken its toll
But our remaining love isn't enough
For us together grow old

I knew forgiveness
Had to come with a price
You will never trust me
Your brain is easily enticed

You, too, have grown older
Into a very handsome man
So sorry my latest letters
Will never reach your hand

Our, again, failed marriage
Twenty years later, and loving facts
Has crumbled under past events
Memories that stayed intact

Years of telling you what I needed
And couldn't get
Months of not telling you
Is my final regret

I wrote about how you must hurt
The pain of years apart
How you love with every fiber
When you are secure with your heart

It's just scattered words
Now I write to me, myself, and I
Everything I'm feeling now
Once again, I want to die.

We have a forbidden love
Each of us to protect and defend
To love and cherish
To die together in the very end

Our final letter
We will both be able to read and see
As it is our final farewell in this life
Another divorce decree.
