A letter to say...
A letter to say I give up because you put me down.
A letter to say thanks for the pain it just made me sane.
A letter to say forget it even though you never bothered to think about it.
A letter to say you were loved, you will be loved and you're loved just never again by me.
A letter to say you look perfect, you act perfect but your reflection gives me a different point of view of you.
A letter to say I'll never be over you I'll just be above you.
A letter to say why I did what I did and ask for forgiveness even though you're far from perfect yourself.
A letter to say come and take a closer look before you decide you hate me because I don't wear the coolest clothes or listen to your type of music or because I like the same sex.
A letter to say don't be so narrow minded.
