I wrote a letter

I wrote a letter to you
Yesterday or maybe last year
It was strewn with faded memories
And a few dark secrets

I wrote a letter to you
When the gramophone played the song
That you sang to me
Many ages ago

I hoped to linger
The way a scar lingers
Before you found me lying there
In the farthest corner of your perfect life

I tried to placate my mind
But it would not rest
And my sanity slipped away
Through the backdoor of your memory palace

I wrote a letter to myself
Yesterday or maybe last year
I’m still waiting for a reply
From the stranger in the mirror
