a letter has been writ
using a graphite-influenced lead pencil
four pages
three photos were enclosed
something personal
something for her
something
just a rambling sort of letter
nothing particular
to say
merely desiring to reach out
to someone special
I didn't mail it yesterday
I won't mail it today
I shall keep it
intact
never to be opened
sitting here beside me
with words sealed, never to be read

Sometimes our courage slips away from us, and it's good at times that it does. It keeps us from saying words we've already arranged that can only hurt...us or 'them'. It's enough, I think, to have those words laid to rest, having dealt with the experience of creating them.

Touch, but don't look

Funny thing about undelivered mail...I have several ... but those who would have received are no longer with me... and I miss them.

This is actually a real letter I wrote about, Jack. There is nothing in it except my true thoughts, and nothing in the way of being hateful, on the contrary.

Sometimes writing things down can be cleansing.

Absolutely, Ida, and this is that exactly. And yes, it has helped very much. Thank you for understanding.
