    To My Sister Letter #2

    Sylvia, you did this
    I believe you, you were here
    But I still think that you are
    In someplace not unlike my own
    I believe you, Sylvia,
    They have their doubts
    But they don't get it
    They simply can't understand
    Sylvia, you are my sister
    I know we've never met
    But we could have and I still
    Would have loved you,
    I would have still loved you.
    Sylvia you can't say that you never made it
    Because I know that you did,
    You made it as far as you could go
    Thirty-one is amazing when it comes to us.
    And if I live until thirty-one, Sylvia,
    It would make us sixty-two
    We would have made it, understand we can
    I know you Sylvia, I get it
    And I believe you.
    If you were beside me, Sylvia
    I would have the courage
    To do it with you.
    But that isn't what you'd want
    There was nothing that you wanted
    Yet you needed a lot
    And it became too late, I get it
    I get why you're not here
    But Sylvia, there's our difference,
    That's our difference
    Come back, live a little
    And we'll write a novel
    of the truth
    Of our truth, the modern Bell Jar
    If you belive me, and I believe you,
    Then we'll go down screaming together,
    A full attack on cruelty
    Then they might know what it is
    Maybe once we crack and gush
    Into the concrete...
    They'll belive us.
    It has to be true.

    Hey...this is really beautiful. I can feel the emotion there though I may not be able to relate completely. But I guess I still can understand. Welcome... :welcome:
