the blue and red lines are stained with her tears
this crinkled white paper is lined with her fears.

she poured her heart out
to her boyfriend this way,
she wrote down her love
and then cried it away.

nothing looked wrong
she found him sleeping sound,
also she found that her neighbor
had been sleeping around.

she saw them together
in the bed that she bought
she ripped up her letter
and cried for the better.

she thought they were perfect,
he apparently did not.

it wasn't just anniversaries he had forgotten.
