your letter – a poem

Side Note:

I’m taking part in the Writing101 challenge, which means this is a break in what I usually post. Day 5’s challenge is to:

You stumble upon a random letter on the path. You read it. It affects you deeply, and you wish it could be returned to the person to which it’s addressed. Write a story about this encounter.

Today’s twist: Approach this post in as few words as possible.

I used to have Fiction Fridays, so I’ll post this under that category.

Journal - an ongoing letter to myself

Journal – an ongoing letter to myself

your letter

I found your letter the other day.
You wished me well in life,
hoping all my dreams come true.
But what can I say to you?
You are long gone.
How can I tell you that those dreams,
the ones whispered in the dark to ourselves,
the ones pined for and pinned our hopes on
have changed?
Secret thoughts,
penned quietly in the dark of night,
curled up beside the bed,
have changed.
You are long gone.
But I know the girl you were
would be proud of the woman you’ve become.

How about you?

  1. Love where you took this one. I never thought about re reading my own journal. But, I do journal and it is interesting to re-read. Thanks for sharing.
