Hi. This will be my last letter.
I wish you'd written me back at least once,
So I could know what I said meant something to you.
More importantly, that you were okay.

I made a mistake,
Thinking I could write you once and set all things right.
Now, I wonder why you never wrote back.
Maybe you're on a long vacation?

I'm not sure,
But it hurts to know there are words out there
That will never be said, never be colored in
Except as ash for the fire.

Poetry is a hard gleaming scoop
To sift through the ashes, unpretty, exposed.
It takes so long to walk away,
And for a while, there are always footprints leading back.

Looks like our letters are side by side
This is very sad but written with tenderness and warmth
Very good

Mike,
   I find your style very intriquing. I like the way you express your thoughts, you have a nice flow to your words. I am not a great fan of unrhymed poetry but I have enjoyed both of your works I have read.

Mike,
I really like this.  Sadness and longing emit from your words.  Maybe she will return before the footsteps fade and the path back disappears forever.  Well written!!

 Friends are friend forever if the Lord's the Lord of them and a friend will not say never cause the welcome will not end.

You've shed a new light on vulnerability with this piece, Mike. I can't narrow it down to one or two favorite lines...
