I’ve Lost My Pen Pal

I’ve lost my pen pal to the web
My lust for the written word is dead
Her quill’s gone dry
Please tell me why
What will I take to bed
Within her thoughts
She always caught
The truth inside of me
How could this world I loved so well
Turn to catastrophe
Each envelope so well addressed
The smell alone I would caress
They took me places I could never go
If not for her I would not know
After all those lovely years
Of cheers of fears of tears
As I address this first e-mail
My heart’s begun to cry
I feel as if this is the end
As if a sad goodbye
Her Spenserian loops that flowed so well
Are fonts on my screen so drab
The ink she used from pens of old
Would always show a dab
With her words the same
I’ll play along with this game
Then print her letters to save
My pen pal is my e-pal now
And will be to my grave.
