Do I miss you more?
Your words absent
Hollow space on white page
Where our love
Unwritten, denies all being.

Do I miss you more?
Your words painting
Masterpiece of passion
Where our love
Unveiled, reveals its truth.

Could I miss you more?
The silence falls
Etched beneath life's vellum
Where once love
Unrestrained, bloomed vivid hue.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Once, lovers had to wait for an exchange of letters in the mail, and that might take days or even weeks. The agony of expectation occurred daily when the postie came. The advent of email and smartphones means that lovers can suffer that same agony so much more frequently and efficiently. Ain't technology grand?

    The poem is beautiful, the note thoughtful and the title, of course, is wonderful!
    I have a poem titled 'Our Lost Treasure Trove' in which I said how I missed the handwritten letters of my love. If you have time, please go through it and say a few words if you like. (Report) Reply
