I want to write a love letter
And throw it in the middle of the ocean.
Let it disintegrate as if it never existed
And with it so will my heart
Return to its rightful place.
No words will be on this letter
Because love isn't bound by language,
Nor will I know the words
To express its sacredness.
It will have my intention and that alone.
So really - it will be a piece of paper with a whole lot of love on it.
Love that only the ocean will know of,
Because only the ocean is wide enough
Only the ocean is forgiving enough
To let me throw love into its womb.
Only the ocean can contain
A love so great it slipped out of my finger tips.
In April 2020, while experiencing her first ever global pandemic, Tamar Pelzig pledged to write something every day, even if it's only a word, so she welcomed to the world a daily blog to keep her creative writing wheels rolling.
