meter and rhyme. 


I wrote a dozen letters
Standing still today
Confiding in a pen
What words, I will not say

Revised a dozen letters
Stubbed and sleekly gray
Sincerely signed and stamped
Concise, precise arrays

I sealed a dozen letters
Bearing each your name
The flag still loitered down
The missives still remained

I poured a dozen letters
Tonics, one could state
I wrote a dozen letters,
And threw them all away

Its easier to write the letters in your head oron paper then toss them because you know the response you will get. OIts easier to imagine a differant outcome and easier to live with
