Drafts

Delete the drafts

of the emails you’ll revisit, reword but never send

of the letters you’ll write but crumple and throw

of the messages with emoticons you don’t feel

of the words you’ll practice but never say

of the words you don’t mean, anyway

of the confessions you’ll never make

of the giant leap you’ll never take

as much as your heart would ache.

because sometimes,

the most courage you will need

is not to spill the letters, words and confessions

but

to delete those damned drafts.
