This Letter by Marcus Taylor

This is a letter, to you and to me
Before we have a final kiss
I wrote words for you. My notebooks are in a stack
Read them in my voice. Read them with your heart
In your heartbreak, this poet will come back

This is a letter, to you and to me
Many things needed to be said out loud
But I let anger take over my words
I wish to take back nights our bed was split
And have mornings of love with the birds

This is a letter, to you and to me
Throw away the unopened mail
Keep my love. The materials will collect dust
Reminders of what we have are not in things
What I leave can be helpful to someone. This is just

This is a letter, to you and to me
I wrote all of these poems
To help me say I love you in a cool way
Sounds better when said in poetic form
Hold my love so this poet can come back to you one day

I have developed a new hobby which is engraving wooden and metal objects. I hope to make my own table one of these days. And I recently picked up photography as well.

I have a job at Ga Tech, by day. But writing and sharing my creativity is my work. I like to distinguish the two. I have self-published one book, “The Wait is Over”, and have a few chapbooks: Being Single is Cool, 14 Ways This Poet Says I Love You, and Seasons. I also have a podcast, Soul Fever, and two spoken word albums.
