Love In Handwritten Letters – Poem

In the olden times,

The long-distance love blossomed

Under the aegis of the handwritten letters.

And with the passage of time,

Even the near ones turned distant

And the love languished.

A splurge of means to express love

Have fallen short of saying

The three magical words.

The grandeur of all the possessions,

howsoever beautiful they may be, are materialistic,

And so never keep a heart tucked to the other

For a long duration.

Those letters exchanged before

Contained the fragrance of affection.

Though they were inanimate

The letters were able to say aloud the intended messages with proper diction.

Such was the beauty of those postcards

Those soft white or maybe, colorful pages,

Which had the love smeared all over it!
