I Never Wrote a Letter Back


Ashton Bruce, Staff Writer

The length of the words you use

Does not define your sincerity,

Nor does the letters’ complexity

Determine how much you want me back.


No matter how poetically you

Write to me, no matter how

Many times you quote Walt Whitman

Or William Shakespeare,

I want you to know

That “Romeo and Juliet”

Was a tragedy, not

Something for you

To base your

Love letters on.
