Inside a cheap card I wrote "forever" and signed my name.

When am I finally going to realize that forever is really never?

I got a card back just as cheap if not cheaper,

signed in meaningless X's and O's.

So I don't drink exotic coffees or participate in drama.

So what if I like to scribble down poetry

instead of paying attention in math class?

So what if I want to buy a log cabin with a fireplace

instead of a designer's outfit and a car?

I sent you another cheap card

and you never wrote back.
