We Drop All Matters That Do Not Matter


This truth that

appears on a

piece of paper

that we call

a love letter

is haunting

us and our

minds question

how we define

feelings that

are created from

an intimacy that

began from

holding hands

and kissing lips


We drop all

matters that

do not matter

and we welcome

our hearts to

both of us

  3. Hi Chester, I really like this one. Do you enter some of your poems in competitions or do you just write them for yourself and your readers?

    • Hi Rachel. Thanks for liking this one!

      I write poetry passionately and to connect with my readers. The idea of entering a poetry contest is being considered though I had a few entries before but never won. Still, I am happy that my readers appreciate what I write! 🙂

    Aw new love…a fire storm of emotions! Well said. 🙂

    I loved the part about dropping all matters that do not matter! Let’s meet here, in the heart, in that most intimate space where nothing ever happened. The world will not trouble us here – we will not trouble ourselves, now we can see so clearly at last. This Love never came or left, nor looked away for even one moment, but has been waiting always in the stillness that we are.

    So….did the “love letter” matter? You left me hangin with this poem.
