Ending It

it seemed a good idea – put it in writing

and now the letter was held gingerly

in her quivering hands

sitting across from the mailbox

trying to imagine being elsewhere

in a tea shop or trying on shoes

she could get up, walk away

tuck the missive in an old book or

inside the jacket of a vinyl record album

she could run to the nearest trash

can and drop it there –

or she could open the

mail slot

and end the

misery

forever

(word list – idea, sitting, book, hands, letter, mailbox, shop, records, way, walk, run, elsewhere)

  1. Yes sometimes ‘ending it’ holds an appeal but i believe in words if not in people or the world..and it is surprising how much they can create another path..an illuminating and powerful poem – let us always write on
