The Love Note


©2016 Susan Noyes Anderson

She loves him with a love profound,
but not that well-expressed.
The sweetness sings inside her heart 
but rarely leaves her chest.

She is too plain and he too fair.
How dare she seek his favor?
Ah, but he smiles…traces her face…
seizes her lips to savor.

She rides a seesaw of emotion,
coupled, yet alone.
Behind her dusky eyes she yearns
to be more fully known.

Unnerved, she pens a love note,
words that she has longed to say,
traps them inside an envelope,
kisses it on its way.

Written in response to a picture prompt from Tess Kincaid.

Not only a beautiful poem that fits the photo perfectly...she's mailing a letter...a real, pen, paper, stamp, snail mail, letter. That must be love!
