I made a compilation of the half done letters that I’d written for you

Comprising of words such as “why?”, “I’m sorry”,  and “I love you” over and over

Words formed just before the light of day

I couldn’t sleep and all that was on my mind was you

Letters that (regrettably) saw the light of day

Mailed under the influence of dry whiskey

You had become the subject of my nightly prayers

Begging the God of mercy for your return

But instead, two weeks later I received my envelope

Stamped “Return To Sender”
