poetry by j matthew waters

carrier pigeon

heartfelt thoughts
so lucid in my mind
seem to lose their edge
when transcribed
onto stationary

describing a loneliness
emanating deep
within my soul
cannot begin to capture
the sadness i feel
while you are away

i roll my emotions
using my fingertips
and tuck them away
into the dove’s vessel
praying she will find you
without delay

november two thousand twelve
