Signed with love


A cobweb of creases
Tentacled across the golden yellow
Parchment spread out like a map.
The overtly italicized handwriting
Looping in gracefully intricate patterns;
Like skimpy damsels dancing in unison;

Wild emotions, hysterical anecdotes,
Blissful experiences;
Crawling across the letter,
Resonating passion in every syllable.

My fingers trace the smooth words
Like a whimsical scribe
Inebriated with the narrator’s verbiage;

My throat convulses effusively
And I choke with my own tears;
As I gaze at the correspondence
That was signed with love…
