Is it important to have a title every single time ?

Dear You

Dear You,

I got your letter.

And I hated it.

Why do you have to finish it in just three words ?

I feel those words even if you do not mention them every single time. Plus, people read postcards. They really do.

I should tell you to eat well, dress warmly and come back real soon.

You know how I am.

No, I don't cry myself to sleep anymore.

The garden has plenty of flowers this season. I pick them each morning.

It is during the nights that I miss you the most.

Just come back, soon enough.

Yours,

Me.





Fumes of Madness

For she looked lovely and was the center of attraction.
Underneath his apron, he carried a bottle of  vitriol.
Minutes ago she was laughing at a random joke.
Eventually he splashed her face with heat.
She shrieked and felt her face dissolve.

Others were shocked and he ran away.
Fifteen seconds of fury washed away her life.

Maybe he was insane or even an admirer,
A creature of jealousy, lust or rage,
Drunk on the wine of entitlement and ego.
Nevertheless he could not change her.
Even without her looks, she won hearts.
Survived the catastrophe and had her way,
Shocking the world with the powers she had.
