  • My letters are lost.
    I sent them to you, one at a time.
    In my dreams. In my thoughts. In my yearning heart.
    I yearn for your heart to rest upon mine.
    Our fingers intertwined, your feet dangling. Your beautiful gap toothed smile. Your round squishy cheeks.
    Home sick. I'm sick for the home you are in. The room. My room. Our room.
    There's no room. I long for room. A room to ruminate in. A room to play in.
    With you. And our lost letters.

    My letters are lost. I sent them to you, in bits and pieces. I rolled them up into tiny little balls and bowled them over towards you.
    I'm sure they've not reached you. Not the way I let them go.
    My fingertips still tingle with hope. That you might find my letters in disarray.
    Assemble them together like lego pieces. You leave them there, in a tangled mess.
    Perhaps the mess was my own.
    My messy letters.

    My letters are lost. I sent them to you wrapped in twine bundles.
    I checked them thrice.
    You must have seen them. My letters. Yes. My letters. My messy letters.
    Where have they gone? Who could have them?
    Maybe I'll send them once more. For now, they're lost.

    My letters are lost. I sent them to you one by one. Picked them apart like petals of a flower.
    I blew them over with all my might.
    Did you catch a few as they tumbled past?
    They contained all that I am.

    My letters...
    My letters...
    My letters...
