My Heart In A Letter
Poem By CHARMAINE SIMPSON
I sent you my heart in a letter,
I gave it showing all of me and what i felt,
I was open -
I was honest -
I dont really know what i expected?
Maybe a responce?
showing me for once your true self,
or what is in your heart -
without restriction of your pride.
I have been holding on to you,
with my fingertips,
wishing one day i might hear the words -
i need to hear.
The thought of no longer trying to keep this grip,
is like letting myself fall from a cliff -
unable to see the bottom and knowing,
I will shatter -
into a million pieces when i hit the ground..
I am scared of life after us.
