Inbox says empty my spirits sink low
Wanting you near me, waiting to hear
To read and devour you’re every word
To feel your closeness and spirit transcend
To lift me and sooth me as only you can.

    Damned e-mail 'empty' bull! This poem is so true, it's scarey! A perfect, everyday picture of modern technology messing up romance. And I thought the heart could only sink so far, then stop the downslide! Good one to read, people. You'll identify with this one! ! ! xxElysabeth (Report) Reply

    David, my mail box is normally full of junk mail I don't really want. The one I look forward to never ever seem to come. Instead of having no mail I get too much. Great little poem I can relate to. Top marks and thanks for sharing it my friend.
