last year.

I never mailed that Valentine’s card
because the words were heavy
and I wasn’t sure
how you’d handle such honesty.

Change is scary
(and rejection scarier)
so even though I stamped the envelope,
I couldn’t make myself
drop it in the box to you.

The love wouldn’t be worth
the risk of losing everything else.

I’ll just keep my heart quiet
for now.

  1. youve got a deep heart my friend. Kansas just might not have the kind of guy you need. ;)

    I think it’s time for you to relocate to the good ole South where our mamas taught us to say please, thank you, and Ma’am.


    • Thank you. It’s nice to know there are worthwhile ones out there! :):) btw, I’ve been meaning to throw you an email to catch up. Hope all is well.
