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

A short but sad perspective. Lots of emotion in this Jacob.

I got the return address down pat Jacob, it's who to send it to that gets confusing and what address to send to... sheeeesh, now I have all these returned letters, very little ink in the heart and that Elvis song tap dancing in my head... but, and it's a BIG BUT, I loved your poem...

One must, I assume, include the zipper code--or perhaps, in this case, withhold it. Not certain which way it goes.
Three amazing and powerful lines, Jacob; lines that definitely deliver the message

thank you for your kind review, Jimmy,

This one pulled on my heart stings. I love the analogy, it's perfect. The heart only has so much ink to pour out, eventually it has to be refilled.

If they wait too long to respond all their letters will be marked return to sender.
