Damned Blue Envelope

I hate that damned blue envelope
makes my heart jump every time
is it you?
I want to NOT want
I need to not crave
your words
is it you?
I get so excited everytime
it shows it’s ugly flap
is it you?
I miss that damned thing
I miss you
I think I might need
to see that damned thing
at least a thousand more times
is it you?

    That craving, the need, the longing, the missing, the terrible, all-consuming feeling of emptiness when the bloody envelope doesn’t appear when you expect it to…or it does, but it’s not from the right person…they say it gets better with time…who will guarantee that, and why don’t I believe that?
    I don’t want it to get better…I just want that envelope!
    I NEED to, see “that damned envelope at least a thousand more times”…
    Wow…your story feels just like my story…perfectly composed, Barb!

  • Happy to hear I’m not the only one. Thank you so much for stopping by and commenting AnniG.
