Lost Art

Love Letter

 

Fingers graze over the envelope,

Pressing the paper against my nose

Inhaling the scent of the message

Holding it ever so close.

 

Eyes dancing over the pages,

The script remarkably elegant.

Haven’t received one for ages

Words expressing sweet sentiment.

 

How I long to touch my beloved,

For his lips to brush against mine.

For now, this will be enough

Drinking his words like wine.

This week, tell us about a lost art: one that you know, one that you miss, or one that should be lost for good.
