Return to Sender

I sent a love letter around the world
With a wreath stamped in one corner
and my feelings standing stark against the white envelope.
It flew like an albatross
Its wind, my devotion tucked within the pages–
enough to keep a cold chest warm in empty winter.
Now summer’s flush has left me burned
And my little envelope flew home
Scuffed and stamped from a thousand miles
With just a three word reply:
"Return to Sender."
