Love Letter

Feather tipped shafts,
dip into ink,
trail onto parchment.Lift your eyes and gaze there,
see your hand, blurred through the mist of sadness.

Begin the long strokes that spell out the name,
your loves beauty trapped in winding black lines.

Simple lines

A thousand words before
and another thousand after,
have said nothing you haven’t before
discovered only memories.

Drift inside your minds eye
the last sight,
cherished lips parted in final farewell.

Pour onto paper
your essence

quill scratches

into
silenceWeep for that forever never
seal it in sanguine nomenclature
hand deliver intimate you.
