Emma’s Poetry Corner: Love Letters to the Dead

Hey guys! I just finished a very good book that you all should check out- Love Letters to the Dead by Ava Dellaira. It’s very moving, and if you liked Perks of Being a Wallflower, you’ll love this! So this week’s poem is a spoiler-free one inspired by this awesome book! Enjoy and as always please leave reviews and recommendations!

Sometimes the only ones who listen

are the ones who can’t respond.

The long gone

the freshly departed

Writing to you is like

writing to myself

because we are both broken

except you gave up.

I’m sorry that I could not fix you

but I’ll try instead

to fix myself.

After all,

even the dead

deserve love letters

right?
