You’ve Got Mail

buzz

good morning

you’ve got mail

do you see it?

you might wanna open it

it’s him.

yes

it’s him

it’s him again

knocking on those doors

the doors of your mailbox

it’s him.

fifty

fifty-one

fifty-one, buzz

we’re still at fifty one

go on, open it already

IT’S HIM!

2002

those days

those (insert word) days

his hand in yours

everything else slipped into oblivion

it’s him.

2003

goodbye time

long-distancing it

a house left unattended

a heart left in wrong hands

it’s him.

2004

October 2004

He’s busy

busy busy busy

“he must be busy”

does he still love me?

it’s him.

2005

spring ensues

it’s all changing

calm is already lost

surrendered to the storm within

it’s him.

BUZZ!

sixty

sixty-seven

leave me alone

leave, no stay, stay

stay and fix it all

it’s him.

2006

time lapse

fast, and slow

wait, where am i?

find me, find him, us

it’s him.

2007

new city

“find him”, don’t

fresh start, blank slate

the first face i see?

it’s him.

seventy

email overload

apologies are aplenty

more than one poem

easier to break than fix

it’s certainly him.

hey

it’s me

i love you

i really love you

don’t treat me this way

he says

it’s him?

rejected

turn away

back away, RUN

don’t dare look back

he won’t follow, i promise

it’s him after all.

2010

buzz, BUZZ

you’ve got mail

it’s not him anymore

he left, who would stay?

it’s easier to leave

the mess as

it is

than

pick up

the broken shards

of a broken heart.

yes

he’d agree

he certainly would

wouldn’t you?

there.

buzz

good morning

all emails read

some responses, some deleted

you’re doing so much better

he’s in the trash

for good reason

stay put

deep breaths

stop fidgeting

it’s over.
