Unsent Letter to Jessica

By: Jason R.

If I could, I would gladly heal your pain

If I could, I would lay your head on my shoulder

If I could, I would love you more than I love myself

If I could, but we both know I can't

If I could, I would paint the sky blue for you

If I could, I would write a sonnet with you in mind

If I could, I would scream my love from the rooftops

If I could, but we both know I won't

If I could, I would have told you I was gay

If I could, I would act like an adult and admit my mistakes

If I could, I would take back the way you found out

If I could, but we both know I can't

If I could, I would never return to Nola's

If I could, I would tell everyone that you broke my heart

If I could, I would lie and say I'm sorry

If I could, but we both know I won't

If I could, I would never have fucked you...twice

If I could, I would take it all back

If I could, I would make you forget me

If I could, but we both know I can't

Yes Gabe. This is the first in a series of Unsent letters I'll be posting over the next few months in the poetry forums and in my blog. (shameless plug) The idea of exploring my past in this manner intrigues me. I know I have several unsent letters over the years, and maybe, with this new thing called "internet", some of them might be delivered to the right parties.
