Unsealed words left on my doorstep

Reassuring me there is no need to proceed

A note taped inside a box, whirring, ticking and buzzing

As I read I realize your love I did not achieve

With uncertainty you describe your thoughts

Too scared to call and hear my voice, what I might say

Who were you anyway?

Why would I want you to stay?

Friends you say you want to be

But you’re never emailing me

You are not the person

I thought you were originally

So I’ll turn off my box

And not anticipate from you

What you are not

Would rather just leave you unopened and new

Very nice writing. And boy, lots of us sure do have lost loves don't we? Perhaps it just wasn't meant to be.. but it hurts a lot to lose someone that you thought was your best friend.
