love is a return address
in the corner of a heart
running out of ink

Pleased to have catched this one. Like it. It has all the charm of the Liverpool poets, or a touch of Hugo Williams. Excellent.

OH MY....how brilliant this is, Jacob! True love never really leaves the heart. No matter how nasty a break up might be, there is always that fading bit of love...does it ever really leave? I don't think so. Fantastic! Lydi**

Gets my stamp of approval. I actually bought stamps the other day, first time in years. I could have flew to America cheaper.

There is nothing worse than a love marked 'Return to sender'!

As always, very well written and full of thought and reason. Nice work, Jacob.

thank you for your kind words, Doodley.

I know an old Tagalog song here entitled "Kahit Maputi na ang Buhok Ko" (Even When My Hair Turned White) that is an all-time favorite because of its great message of a lifetime love.
Isn't it touching when someone tells you that his/her heart won't function for anyone but for you until its last beat? That happens in true love

very interesting, thank you, Dhaye.

.Such depth composed in a few lines.. gives me hope
that perhaps there's a replacement, like a fluidwriter pen overflowing and never ending..
