Write me off #poetry #life’slessons


writing-a-letter1

As long as you relegate me

to the third person

I can remain in your jail

unwanted, unaccepted

blotted away as the ink fails

***

As long as you write of me

he,she

or it

then I can’t exist

in your word’s orbit

***

As long as you close the book

you classify me

old, dusty, archived

no memory’s smile

when you chance by

***

you hope that love

of the brown pages

becomes impotent

delving into me

time not well spent

  1. I really like the form of this poem. I think that is one of your strengths. It is also very visual. I could see the failing ink being blotted away and I liked the the thought of being referred to in third person. You can’t care about someone and you don’t even use their name. They treat you like an object. I could see the dusty archived books that get no love. Great poem….I like you and look forward to more.
