Dispatches from the wilds of Poetania – “Penelope”

I wish I knew
where you’ve got to
I miss you so.
I miss the little sounds you made,
the scratching.
I miss you.
I miss holding you,
having you at my fingertips,
feeling you move.
I miss you.
I miss sharing my thoughts,
your rapt, eager attention.
I miss you.
I miss making poetry together,
the shared silent secrets.
I miss you.
I made a mistake,
I was not myself
has that cost me you forever?
I miss you.
I was so careful,
always thinking of you
didn’t I try my best?
But all that care,
day after day,
undone by one mistake.
Is that fair?
I miss you.
I miss loving you.
I miss holding you.
I miss writing with you.
I miss you.

  1. Any luck with the chain letter, then?
    What type of pen was this, exactly?
