The Letter

August 18, 2013

I got a letter today
A scent of hope upon its wings
and yet
You told me her DOD is barely legible
They botched it
Another cut in a heart with so many scars already
And you end as if writing to the electric company
with some minor complaint about your bill
when we are bound by blood
and by tragedy
Why can’t you bring yourself to pen two simple words
….love….you….
