Re: The Lost Art of Letter-Writing poem by Benjamin Blake

are we talking about missed communication and a lost relationship here?

If so not a bad take.

The meaning of a poem is what it means to each reader "as" they read them. Whatever a poet's or author's intent becomes irrelevant after they release it for public consumption.

This one to me is a person's frustration in not being able to communicate their love for someone and maybe wishes they had not made the attempt to express it.

Good one!
