The Letters

Written for:  Go Dog Go Cafe - Tuesday Writing Prompt
(by Devereaux and Beth)

"Write about a time where you were betrayed."

Love letters
in a trunk
found by Mom

Discharged dishonorably
lies, lies, lies
too young to be a wife
at eighteen.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
