It's hard to pretend I don't care.
It's hard to smile through these tears,
But showing you my weakness,
Well, that's my biggest fear.

You shouldn't know my heart is broken.
You shouldn't know that I still cry.
You shouldn't know that I still wonder,
And I'm still asking myself why.

But still I think about you,
Every night while I'm in bed.
I just wish I would've told you
All the things I should have said.

I should have told you that I loved you.
You meant the world to me.
I always thought it was apparant,
But I guess you couldn't see.

I wish that you'd still hold me.
I want to be back in your arms.
Then nothing in this world
Could ever cause me harm.

I'm sorry for whatever...
But what did I do wrong?
I can't help but think about you
Everytime I hear our song.

I wonder where you are now
And who you're holding tight,
But whoever your new love is,
I hope she treats your right.
This was written for somebody in my very recent past. Obviously his name is John. I guess you could say he's not in my past because I just wrote this poem yesterday. Oh well. He's the only person in my life who has ever made me feel this way.

It sucks when things fall out with a person but you just can't find a way to be angry with him/her. :-\

Strange title. You know to get a dear john letter in war times was a letter to soldiers wives telling them that their husband was dead.

Well, the guy's name is actually John...but it was also intended as that "goodbye, we're done" kinda thing...not a war-time "hey, your husband is dead!" But, I didn't know that! Thanks :-)

Yay. I swear, I didn't steal that title from her song ¬_¬. I like that song "Stranger in my House" or whatever it's called.

Thanks!

This is really, really, really good (and yes, it does deserve three 'reallys'). This person must have meant a lot to you, and you've expressed your feelings really well. :)
