Ten - Poem by Lora Cooley

I promised Brandon I'd always write to him
It's one of the few promises I've kept over the years
Promises painted with words like ‘I will never change' fade off the sides of buildings
But I have no regrets
I am not sorry
I do not ask for forgiveness
For it's not mine to give
I have an empty mail box
But that doesn't bother me
Never has
I promised I would see you once a week
It's been 3 years
But that doesn't bother me
Never will
I told him we would move to far away
But only half of us made it
Looking at changed addresses
U made it but dropped off the s
But that doesn't bother me
Never could
I wrote my last letter yesterday
With 3 words
Only 11 letters long
On printed paper
All it said was ‘I forgive you'
I don't regret that I never told him that my forgiveness only extends
To my mailbox
I'm not sorry that I still haven't gotten a reply
