Postmarked Yesteryear This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
   You were supposed to write me.

What happened? Did your letter

get lost in the mail?

I hoped that letter would

explain a few open-ended

pieces of sky

you left behind.

Is it lying on your desk somewhere?

Unfinished because

you had so much to say

or never started

because you had nothing to reveal.



I have something to say

even though you may not listen;

my words and questions are

never-ending.

I have tried to write them down.

If they don't make any sense

don't worry.

I asked the postman;

he said a letter can't be sent to

yesteryear.
