Today the song for November Notes Day 22 is “Letter Never Sent” by Young Summer. I’m combining the prompt with a second song prompt by Tegan and Sarah called “100X” from MindLoveMisery’s Menagerie .

“Letter Never Sent” by Young Summer
“100x” by Tegan and Sarah
I swear I tried to leave you one-hundred —
Times, but you don’t listen, ignored the dread.
I need out on my own, can’t live in red —
With fear and loss, with a one-day hope led;
Love was gone, we didn’t talk, hearts bled.
I pray someday you’ll see, I’m not the one —
You lost; the one who got away — we’re all done.
Silent you pack your bags, deep words unsaid.
A thousand times a day, I tried to say —
In a different way — but you kept writing,
Wrote a letter never sent promising then,
That I’d be back, but I didn’t return
I rehearsed my words to let you go, then —
You shrieked; the end I knew, would be a fight,
