One way love

One way love

A Poem by SleeplessVolcano

Her little hand-scribbled notes
morphed, gradually
into love letters
After so many
"Wish you were heres"
"Missing yous"
An initial haphazard script
smoothed out into
a labor of love
Thoughts and ideas
undulating through
cursive brilliance
Just a pity - 
that while my mail box was brimming
hers echoed
my empty

perfect title ..well said ...the bottle on the beach makes me think of sailors and all those loves left in distant harbors and romantic islands ;)
i relate to this the one way lover and said those two lines oh so many times ... it is a miracle that we remain friends .. i think she must have about got sick hearing it from me ... so very hard to let go of that love and dream ...oh well ;) very clever closing sir ...

dear Sleepless... our thoughts drift on the ocean of dreams... love begotten but not forgotten... the edges of eternity will always be in our heart and soul. Beautiful poetry. truly, Pat
