Ashes

 

You took a piece of paper,

A pen,

Began to write.

Did not even

Bother

To keep it out of sight.

 

All the words you said

To me,

Promises you made;

The plans we

Put together

Now are in the shade.

 

Every shared ideal we

Put out

Into the air,

You’ve turned

To rubbish

With not a single care.

 

You take that paper,

Scrunch it,

Screw it.

You strike

The match and

Hold it to it.

 

Those promises worth nothing

Now that you

Have lit that match,

Are disappearing

Quickly and

Are turning straight to ash.
