Their letters

Their letters
were more than mere syllables
formed into words
creating intoxicating verses
They were all they had
All they were

So they penned
their bleeding souls
reading each others worlds
through eyes of crossed T’s
and love heart dotted I’s

Their letters
were scribed with indelible ink
sinking beneath the flesh
encasing their souls
embracing fears
chasing fantasies
They were all they had
All they were

So they wrote
their laughing hearts
until their tears stained
each coveted parchment
the pain of separation to blame

Their letters
became the bed they made
the ink their liquid blanket
Distance crossed out all the tease
they needed to see
to read between the lines
to be reflected
in each others eyes

They were all they had
All they were
