The Unposted Letter

Dear You,

Yesterday the wind blew …very softly and it brushed tangled my hair just like you would do it. And our picture…the one in which you were blowing bubbles at me….it fell down and broke…just like all the other memories.You might think how silly of me ,to write these things to you…specially now when you have moved on so much…the reason being…I am I and not you…if I were you ,then I would have closed the windows instead of letting the wind enter…if I were you,the I would have thrown away that old,faded picture instead of keeping it in my diary…

The days pass and nights come and along with them comes our memories…sweet,bitter and sour…And the moon still stares expectantly at me for any message…but I have none…not anymore.

This letter too won’t be posted…just like all the other 6 letters will remain in the drawer and stay there…out of sight but its silence would echo…

Yours I.

      Those letters serve as reminders of what we gained/lost and the fact that we survived! They deserve a better place than trash cans😜

    Keep the letter. So that years from now you can read them and smile. Smile without the hurt, smile at the time long past.

    Exquisitely wistful…an aura of perplexity, pain and a palpable taste of memory. Really quite brilliant.

    Writing is a wonderful way to let it all out.

    “A pivotal role is played in letters”, I remember reading that from one of your older post and that’s so true to this day. I love this letter form of a touching poem, it makes you read it twice not because you didn’t get it the first time, but because it’s worth rereading. Something’s always better when once is never enough. “Too send a letter is a good way to go somewhere without moving anything but your heart.” Phyllis Theroux. That’s what this letter is, very moving, I loved it.
