Love Letters – A Poem by Gabriela M.

Childe Hassam – At the Writing Desk

Poem by Gabriela M.

i am looking over your love letters
my hands are shaking
winds are trying
to take them away from me
bury them
into the depths of the roiling ocean

i am fighting the winds
i am back with you in that place
palm trees born from violet skies
white drapes covering adrenalized lovers
i am laughing
follies of love
your teeth leave painful marks
on my shoulder
winds funneled through my heart
push me into the ocean
salty waters corrode my nostrils
stingrays puncture my arteries
a church bell tolls
your letters
where are they?
