a postage stamp away [MESSAGE BOX--FEEDBACK NEEDED]

September 11, 2021



colored with colored pencils, 
written in pencil,
the address inked in ballpoint pen.

the envelope travels far,
sealed with a kiss,
stamped with a sticker.

from hand to mailbox,
mailbox to truck,
truck to airplane,
airplane to truck,
truck to mailbox,
mailbox to hand. 

the cycle repeats itself,
over and over,
to and from.

the envelope is torn open,
the letter slipped out,
its contents are laughed over, cried over, cherished. 

a pencil scratches a response,
the stamp is smoothed over,
its contents sent off.

each day I miss you more,
each moment I long for your smile.

the distance seems immense,
but really,
you are only a postage stamp away.

    I really adore this! The structure is slightly choppy and repetitive. Maybe change it up a bit! Use more words that flow into each other and switch up the structure from time to time.
    Wonderful work!
