The card was
Dutifully signed
Handed over
Without ceremony
But long ago
The meaning lost…
Above the signature
Was post card love

He hadn’t always
Felt this way…
Or felt nothing at all
But time and
Took their toll
He found his back
Against the wall

Solutions aren’t so easy
We build traps for ourselves
Love has no finite limits
Coming from the deepest well
But when we reach the bottom
There’s nothing left to do
So accept my missive
Gracefully…you needn’t know
But probably do…
The time passed long ago
When I could say the word
And know it was true

      About something I’d rather not know, Suzanne. It’s also a song title, but I appropriated it.
