The letter.
So many years ago
maybe it shouldn't matter anymore
Long since destroyed,
but I remember the words.

…don’t deserve you…
…too good for me…
…better off without me…

I was a girl then, and confused.
But I am a woman now
and I know the sorry sound of guilt.
The sound of a man
who has betrayed the one he loves.

I slept alone
night after night
month after month
year after year.

I told them all no.
I waited, and waited, and waited.

You think you have a secret.
But it is I who have the secret.
