i’m gonna sit right down…

copyright cwmartin 2012

the return address
was faded
and the ink
smeared
no way
of tracing
its origin
inside the envelope
each letter
on the sky blue paper
was perfectly formed
the scent of jasmine
like a gentle kiss
embraced me
as i read
come back
 to me
you have been
gone
much too long
can you not
recall
your
dreams

  1. It is a lovely poem in its own right, but you know what I like best? I like how the title thrusts me back in time and makes me think this moment in the poem has happened over and over with lovers. I like claudia’s read too. 😀
