LOVE LETTER

Ghost of the pen as it leaves the page.
wispy lines
smoky mist
an aching Hand.
an aching Heart.
she wrote the letter
sealed it with a kiss.
or two. (or ten thousand.)
Ghost of her heart.
In his.

Will you be the fire.
Warming my heart.
making it
beat faster.
than the drums you play.
Or will you be the fire.
That eats me alive.
or makes me
eat myself
'cause your pain will stay.

Ghost of the pen as it leaves the page.
black crows
ink blot scrawls
an aching Hand.
an aching Head.
he wrote the manuscript
ended it with a chord.
or two. (or a few.)
Ghost of his head.
In song.

I will be the fire
Warming your heart.
making it
beat faster.
than the drums I play.
I will be the fire.
That embraces you
and saves you
from the shadows.
that threaten to steal you away.

Ghost of the pen as it leaves the page.
tired lines
draggy mist
an aching Hand.
an aching Heart.
she wrote the letter
sealed it with a tear.
or two. (or ten thousand.)
Ghost of her heart.
Was broken.

The fire has died.
My heart is stiff.
making it
icier.
than your cold eyes.
You were the fire.
That made me sweat.
i should have ran away
before you
burnt me.

Ghost of the pen as it leaves the page.
It never left.
he picked up the phone instead.
lightning hands.
anticipating heart.

I won't be the fire
To hurt you again.
making you
bleed like.
the tears you've cried.
But I will be your

Love letter.
Something you can look back on
and remember.
Something you don't have to understand
but can trust.
Something you can cry to
and keep your secrets safe with.
Something who will always love you.
in black and white.
