love letters #poetry

I am looking over your love letters

my hands are shaking

winds are trying

to take them away from me

bury them

into the depths of the roiling ocean


i am fighting the winds

i am back with you in that place

palm trees born from violet skies

white drapes covering adrenalized lovers

i am laughing

follies of love

your teeth leave painful marks

on my shoulder


winds funnelled through my heart

push me into the ocean

salty waters corrode my nostrils

stingrays puncture my arteries

a church bell tolls

your letters

where are they?

  1. Dear Grabbety, congratulations! Well deserved! I am honored and humbled by this nomination. You were the first to feature my blog on your site by the time I had only 20 posts or so. You were the first to nominate me for a blogging award. Since then I received numerous nominations, and I am most grateful to everyone who nominated me. Grabetty, you have been one of my best supporters all along. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

  2. Beautiful, and I can relate. I keep mine safe in a hidden box, but I always contemplate throwing them in the fire place because of the heartache. I can never seem to get myself to do it.

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words! The rest is up to you. I do not know what to say more.

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words! I am sure you will receive love letters. Sooner or later they will come. When they do cherish them!
