Third Time’s a Charm

by marlescharles

Two things I took from the boat
when I could tell it was sinking:
the book and the letter you wrote.

Not that either will keep me afloat,
but I guess I wasn’t really thinking.
Two things I took from the boat,

proof that I haven’t just made you my scape goat
’cause I can tell you without blinking,
‘the book and the letter you wrote,

a letter, which was more of a note,
really, their desired effect was pure wishful thinking.’
Two things I took from the boat,

most important a letter – no, a note,
that’s all – what were you thinking?
The book and the letter you wrote,

a letter that said, ‘I’m sorry’, only that, that’s an actual quote.
How should that keep me afloat as we’re sinking?
Two things I took from the boat:
the book and the letter you wrote.
