Classifying Poetry: Goodbye Love Notes

I just wrote a poem at the end of grief and loss class and, perhaps as a result fo the subject matter,

I don’t even know if it was a love poem, or a letter goodbye.

Maybe it’s both.

What an interesting thought: can “goodbye,” be a love note?

what about “Goodbye.” ?

Capital letters have a lot of value in my world. and punctuation.


is subtle and teasing a lingers hope


is official and painful and ended.

Can official painful ended byes be good? Can they be love?

I am keenly interested in the art of letter-writing.

I am supremely drawn by written communication.

I am moderately assured this concept will make a semblance of sense to another human being.
