letters on crinkled paper
profess your love for everything i am
promise that nothing could take it away
a tear through the words "you're mine"
creases from being folded and unfolded again and again
fingerprints from the many times i held them
to read your words
to me

how many letters did we trade back and forth
how many ways did we learn to say i love you
how many times did we promise forever
before what we had was lost

i can't read them any longer
it feels wrong
those words no longer belong to me, from you
and someday, they'll belong to someone else
along with the rest of you
