poem- perhaps April 26, 2015

Perhaps when

.   you are dead

I will find a cache

.   of hidden love letters,

.   diaries,

.   poetry

all proclaiming your passionate

.   yearnings,

your adoration recorded

.   day after day.

Moments captured on paper

.   trapped filaments of bliss

.   flashes of us through your eyes.


I will find a cache.


.              not.

    I like how the bullet points and sentiments work in opposition. Wonderfully understated. Thanks for the great poems.

    • I don’t know if I should tell you that those are just periods, so WordPress will allow me the spacing I want. If you don’t mark the front of the line, it automatically justifies, even if you space in…
      But thanks!

    Beautifully written 🙂

  6. Perhaps, the living cache of love acts will make this all unnecessary. Then again, it’s nice to have something on which to fall back.

    I like the nostalgic feeling I’ve felt while reading this. Very sentimental 🙂
