Unopened Letter

A letter from the past washed ashore,
Bottled up feelings hidden for years,
Trapped in the isolated island of emotions,
He penned the last of his sane notions.

Her shawl flew above soaring winds,
Clambering to catch the chance that slipped,
Waiting for the love that never returned,
Inside her heart only sadness burned.

A glint buried in sands caught her eye,
Unraveled the message that finally arrived,
Relief of his news answered her broken heart,
Gripped with loss again she is forever scarred.
